NEW PACINO ENTRIES: 3 of 3

What a gem this is and one that I found back when I was a teenager, just getting interested in films. I used to LOVE Al Pacino (still do - maybe not quite as much) and at one point would watch anything of his I could get my hands on. This is one that still holds up. A FANTASTIC little neo-noir, crime thriller with a fabulous cast, including Pacino, John Goodman and the always great Michael Rooker. Ellen Barkin is also great as the dame to Pacino's detective. I just love this one and it's always been one that I can enjoy anytime.











RATING: 8.5/10

  1. OK, I will happily give you this one as fairly enjoyable.. I do have reservations.. I'm not sure I get the real attraction between them .. But perhaps that's deliberate to add to the 'Is she for real or not?" dilemma. I'm not sure.
