Scent of a Woman. Hands down. He played that part like no one ever could have. He reminded me of my dad a lot in that film too. The speech at the end was priceless.

Scarface.....No need to explain this movie!!!!

Cruising J/K

Tossup between Devils advocate, Carlito’s way, and the first two godfathers

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

I have a grudge against Scent of a woman; because I feel the yelling over the top Al we know now started there.

"You don't got nothing to do with your life. Why don't you get a job? Work with lepers. Blind kids. Anything's gotta be better than lying around all day waiting for me to fuck you."

Scarface because of the great quotes lol

YOU WANNA PLAY ROUGH!?

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

I like the movies where he yells and chews scenery.  Wait...

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

For me, probably Glengarry Glen Ross (sp).  So many great Pacino lines in that flick:

"I'm going to find out whose cousin you are and find a way to have your ass!"

"Who told you you could work with men?!"

"You stupid cunt!  You fucking fairy!"

"You'd know it if you ever worked a day in your life: never open your mouth until you know what the shot is.  You fucking child."

He does this slow burn right after Kevin Spacey blows his big sale.  GREAT Pacino performance.

Others I liked him in:
Sea of Love
Looking for Richard
Serpico
Any Given Sunday
and the very underappreciated Donnie Brasco.

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

A good all around actor I would say!!!!!

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

^^Definitley.

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

Either way he remains one of the greatest actors of all time regards of your choice of favorite Al Pacino flick.

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

I'm one of the rare people who think Scarface is a piece of shit movie.  I love him in Frankie and Johnny.

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

I don't think it's a piece of shit movie, but it has certainly lost it's charm since every 14 year went to Spencer's Gifts and bought posters and walk around saying 'Fuck you, mang,' with a terrible accent.  What's funny is they don't even really get the movie, like what it's actually about.  They think it's basically cool to be a coke dealer.

Re: Favorite Al Pacino movie and why?

I made my comments clear,I now give Scarface the rating of $$$$1/2 out of $$$$$.:cool:

For me, I don't think Scarface will ever lose it's charm!

Fantastic movie for sure and wholly underrated compared to Pacino's other work,great work from the late John Cazale too.
