News & Interviews for Scarecrow
Critic Reviews for Scarecrow
Hollywood movies have rarely spoken such tough and tender truths.
Schatzberg throws away the more interesting implications in order to make emotional hay.
I assume that Schatzberg and White wanted somehow to ennoble Max and Lionel, but they sentimentalize them.
There are fine moments, as there would have to be with Hackman and Pacino.
Audience Reviews for Scarecrow
Scarecrow, is a great road movie, it's very sentimental, but this don't changes the wonderful screenplay, written by Michael White, and the direction of Schatzberg. Hackman and Pacino, show a impressive dynamics due that surely go move who is watching. A surprising motion picture whose show that, the better way to satisfy you self this made the people happy and not fight with they. Scarecrow just like Easy Rider and Midnight Cowboy, are road/buddy sentimental movies, sometimes very similar, but still a good film. Fresh.
Hackman and Pacino are terrific in this underrated road movie, an honest and refreshing character study about two different men who develop an unlikely bond - and the effect it causes on each of them. A great drama that can be funny and also surprisingly touching.
"A crow isn't afraid of a scarecrow. It laughs." Liked this just as much as Midnight Cowboy
