Less romance. More Gangster.
I'm a huge fan of gangster movies, but can't stand the romance angle that's always tacked on to them. Ask anyone what the best parts of Donnie Brasco, Casino, Heat, etc are and no one will say "the love story". Carlito's Way is no different. When we're focusing on Carlito the (former) gangster - great. When we're focusing on Carlito and Gail's relationship - meh. So, I decided to remove the character of Gail, and all references to her, completely from the movie. I also decided to remove Pachanga's betrayal. Because with Gail gone, it was just too cruel to have him go out with no friends.
-removed the opening scene, moved part of Carlito's narration in the opening scene to the final scene
-removed all scenes involving Gail
-removed Lalin talking to Carlito about Gail
-removed Sasso warning Carlito about Pachanga, moved Carlito's narration during this scene to just before he enters the hospital
-removed Carlito telling Pachanga to get Gail to meet him at the train station
-removed the reveal of Pachanga's betrayal and Pachanga's death
Disclaimer: This isn't exactly my best fanedit. It has some flaws and, if you decide to watch it, you'll probably notice them. I've taken the concept as far as I can take it and rather than leave it sitting on my hard drive, I'm releasing it. I think it's a solid 6 or 7 out of 10 and if you're a fan of gangster movies, you'll enjoy it.
