An FBI undercover agent infiltrates the mob and finds himself identifying more with the mafia life, at the expense of his regular one.
Joseph D. Pistone said of the film, "If I had one thing to say, there should have been more Anne Heche in the actual script."
There's the boss. And, under him, there's the skipper. You know how this works?
Donnie Brasco: Yeah, it's like in the army.
Lefty: Bullshit. The army is some guy you don't know telling you to go whack some other guy you don't know.
When Donnie first visits Lefty at his apartment, Lefty is watching a 1990s TV surrounded by blank VHS tapes.
