I lost interest in about five minutes. I have no idea who these people are except for Lilo Brancato. Why was an ex-NYPD officer doing a documentary about someone involved in the killing of one of his own? I couldn't get past that. I saw this as a publicity push to shine up Brancato's image and that will never happen. To be sure, many people told him as he spiraled out of control that he was wasting his talent but he CHOSE that path anyway. I want no part of his egocentric comeback. Officer Enchautegui will not have that opportunity.
Poorly made, poorly executed, poor choice of subject. I wonder who paid for this?
Wasted Talent is a gritty documentary where director Steve Stanulis and producer Noel Ashman together examine the temptations and struggles many young celebrities go through on their rise to stardom. It focuses on the story of actor Lillo Brancato who was once considered to be the next Robert De Niro, after his huge success starring in the films A Bronx Tale(De Niro's directorial debut), Renaissance Man, Crimson Tide and the classic TV show The Sopranos. However, Brancato got trapped in the underworld of Hollywood instead becoming a drug addict culminating in his arrest for the murder of a new York city police officer on a drug excursion gone horribly wrong. Though Brancato was cleared of the murder charge, he still did eight and a half years in jail on an attempted burglary conviction. During his time in prison, the young actor was finally able to get clean and sober and is now struggling to redeem himself in the fickle world of entertainment.
