Al Pacino

Simon Axler (Pacino) has invested his whole life in acting. He eats, sleeps, and breathes the craft, so when he finds his faculties failing, he's at a loss. What can he do with himself if he can't act…
Now, I enjoy football as much as the next gal (Go, Seahawks!), but I also know it is a game and it isn't the end-all/be-all of the New World Order. Or at least it shouldn't be. But Oliver Stone takes …
I remember hearing things when The Godfather: Part III was being made—unflattering things that hinted at disorganization and potential failure. Psst. Francis Ford is fiddling with the script as they g…

When The Devil's Advocate first came to video in the late nineties, my co-workers at a tiny independent video store literally fought over who got to keep the screener. Yes, a VHS screener that periodi…
I would just like to refute the notion that Author! Author! is a stinky Al Pacino movie. Maybe the people who said it was didn't see Gigli. Maybe they never had to sit through Dick Tracy. Maybe they w…
