Listen to this:

An anagram of Al Pacino is "a cop in LA"

In the movie "Heat" Al Pacino plays a cop in LA.

I figured that out all by myself. :(

"YOU'RE TEARING THIS BOARD APART!!!"



You couldn't hear it, but that was a flawless Pacino impression.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

That's my fave Pacino movie.

Of the actors that can get away with doing nothing while being confused for acting, Pacino is the most interesting.

But, when Pacino actually can dive into a role, he's one of the best.

I really like the film he directed: Looking for Richard
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

Pacino has really gone downhill as of late... i'd like to block out the last 5 years of my Pacino knowledge from existence.

...he's laughin' his SICK FUCKING ASS OFF!!


and then later... "I'm a FAN OF MAN! I'm a humanist."

classic
and so true -- who could deny the 20th century was entirely his?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Pacino's subtle performance in "Donnie Brasco" is one of the best of his career. It's not showy of flashy as his work in "Devil's Advocate" or "Heat", but it's very internal. It's so heartbreaking in his final scene when he knows what's going to happen to him and his prepares for it; leaving his rings and wallet for his girlfriend to find later.  :cry:

yeah, so true. I really think it's my fav Pacino performance, maybe hand in hand with his Ricky Roma in GGR.
