Al Pacino Movie Marathon
I am a HUGE Al Pacino fan. Since I saw his 1992 film, Scent of a Woman from which he won his first and so far, only Academy Award for Best Actor, I have been hooked with the man and his craft. Today, since we're having system outages (which means almost no client contact) I have buffered three Al Pacino movies. I'm already done with the first one so that means I only have two more movies to watch.
1. Carlito's Way - In this movie he plays the role of Carlito Brigante who has imprisoned for five years but was released afterwards. He tried his best not to go back to his old ways but then circumstances brought him back to the world of drugs and guns. Sean Penn is also in this movie playing the role of Carlito's lawyer. Two excellent actors in one excellent film!
2. Donnie Brasco - Al Pacino starred alongside Johnny Depp where they play Lefty (of the mafia) and Donnie Brasco (FBI undercover agent) respectively. This is based on the real life story of Joseph Pistone aka Donnie Brasco. (Johnny Depp is one of my most favourite actor from his generation and seeing the two of them alongside each other is nirvana for me)
3. Any Given Sunday - I have seen this movie some two or three years back and have loved it since. Here, Pacino plays the role of Tony D'Amato, a football coach. The film depicts the struggles of Tony and his team and once again, in achieving success. (This is the last movie in our list since we all are football fans and we want to save the best for last. LOL)
Any other Al Pacino fans here? What's your favourite Pacino movie?
