Carlito's Way was a great film but suffered run-time wise from extraneous plotlines, mainly Gail. This edit expertly removes her from the film for a much more enjoyable and higher paced experience. Adabisi has created a clearly superior version here, and I'll definitely be watching this edit in future rewatches.
This was a very enjoyable edit. I love Carlito's Way, Adabisi did a great job cutting out Gail. I never really had a problem with that love story, but I always felt it was too long of a movie. The run time is pretty much perfect for a hard boiled gangster flick. Nothing was lost really by cutting Gail. The only noticeable editing was the scene in the DA's office, playing the tape for Carlito. Loved the way you recut the very end.
