Eli is a modern-day version of a tainted weakling who has sold his soul to the devil, but would like to rent it back from time to time.

O filme, que mostra uma Nova York onde o poder é exercido de forma opressiva e cujas noites escondem festas dignas de De Olhos Bem Fechados, traz Pacino em uma das melhores atuações de sua carreira.

All big, subversive fun. In a depressing sort of way.

Trashy and lurid as this movie is, it's certainly not boring, and it keeps its star in hog heaven throughout.

Worth watching for Pacino's hollow-eyed, full-bodied performance and for the strong supporting cast surrounding him.

This film is all about scenery chewing and the cast does it extremely well, especially Pacino and Leone, who in their short time together are a blast.

Pacino is the dynamo that drives it, giving a relentlessly imaginative performance that draws on all the professional expertise and personal experience he's gathered in a lifetime of screen and stage work.

The screenplay is taut and intelligent, sizzling with enough sharp dialogue and dark humor to coast over its flaws.

People I Know hits the mark with its sophisticated depiction of a worn-out PR agent desperately trying to find a way to redeem his sad and sorry life.

An expired shelf life is integral to the movie's downbeat charm.

[O]ne of the most scathing looks at the PR business since Sweet Smell of Success.

A character-study-in- constant-motion, with a little murder on the side -- and because that character is played by Pacino, it often fascinates.

Al Pacino convincing as a burnt-out case in this theatrical piece covering 24 hours in the life of a publicist.
