This film by Brian De Palma is among the best gangster movies of all times. In spite of the overwhelming drama, tension and suspense, the film still manages to make room for sensuality. At the start of this scene, the camera catches up with Carlito, Al Pacino's character, on the entrance to Gale's (Miller) apartment, on the small hours of the night. She barely opens the door, still latched with the chain, and after he asks her to let him in, she taunts him: "What are you gonna do? Are you gonna bust the chain, chase me around the apartment? Get me naked? Take me on the floor?" To which Pacino answers: "I'm too old for that." And she retorts: "That's too bad. If you can't get in, you don't get in." She then turns around and starts walking towards her bed to the rythm of Joe Cocker's "You are so beautiful", while slowly letting her night-gown slip down her back, making sure that Pacino can still see her reflection on a strategically placed mirror on the wall. Gathering all his lust, Pacino busts down the door and catches up with her in the bedroom's entrance, where they kiss passionately.
