If I really wanted to, I could grow a beard like that.
Based on the real-life story of New York City undercover cop Frank Serpico (an honest man who was grievously wounded for refusing to take part in the corruption forced upon him by his peers). Directed by Sidney Lumet, Serpico is at once an indictment of corrupted authority and a shining testament to one man’s effort to reform the New York City Police Department.
Frank Serpico is known pretty much as one of the first real rats within the police department. This guy had the cojones to get every single police officer and show who was dirty, and who was clean. This guy is the man!
So everybody, this is how we’re going to do things. My full review here is posted at Talking Films so go on over to the link, check it out, and write some good little messages in there. It’ll make us all happy.
Check it out!!!
Classic Pacino. Classic Lumet. Great NYC flick. Good job posting this. And yes, I wanna see a pic of you on this site with the Serpico beard workin for ya!
Hahha ooh my gosh dude, be ready, cause during the winter it’s going to be nuts.
good job with new gig, Dan! i too want to see your beard. especially considering youre 20 years younger than me
Hah thanks man, I’ll try to get that up soon.
I feel like this one has lost it’s punch over the years because theres been so many adaptations of the character arc, and the general theme, but it still registers as one of my favorite Pacino performances and I love the way it was shot. Solid flick.
Yeah, it sucks that so many films are like this nowadays, but this still has got some great stuff within it. Gotta love vintage Al Pacino!
