New Year, New Movies #14: Hoohah!

So… I’m not the world’s biggest Al Pacino fan. I enjoy watching interviews with him, but as far as his films… Meh. I guess I don’t really like his schtick. But in saying that I fully realise that I probably haven’t been watching his best work: I didn’t see The Insider, I’ve only seen about a third of Heat, and that fact that I haven’t seen The Godfather is probably my single biggest reason for doing this whole challenge. So last night I dialled it back to Young Pacino. No hoohah!’s, y’see.

OK, so young Al Pacino was Very! Intense! And! Prone To Shouting! But actually this was a really lovely piece of 70s cinema and you can see why people were blown away by him. I was about to comment on how dated it looks and sounds, but them realised it’s 43 years old, so I guess we can let that one pass. Solid. 3/5.
