One of the best movies I have ever seen. Emotional, tragic, powerful. Very strong performance from Al Pacino at his best. Un des meilleurs films que j'ai jamais vus. Une performance magistrale d'Al Pacino.
I dont know i loved and hated al pacino's character who was equally a huge dick and scary as he was charming and stand up. How could that lady ask someone to watch her uncle and not inform them what was going on-what a biatch. She shouldnt have let some 18 year old or whatever he was watch him alone with that kind of attitude and mental instability. That kid i felt kept doing things for ppl he shouldnt have. He shouldnt have let frank talk to him or continue to threaten him. He also shouldnt have stood up for those pricks at his school who were brats to the principal. The acting in this movie was excellent and i did really like a lot of the script. Some scenes were not ok like frank threatening to kill charlie and himself with a gun, frank telling charlie he is fired and if charlie touches him he is dead, frank being rude and crass at his brothers house and choking someone, etc... I just had a problem with how the movie tries to excuse franks erratic lunatic behavior just bc he is blind and lonely and say its ok for charlie to be a doormat. Frank was violent and rude to charlie a lot. That being said prob al pacinos best performance.
Spectacular performances by the entire cast! Proof that Al Pacino is one of my favorite actors! Totally sold me on the idea that the loss of sight cannot hold you back from the pleasures of life! That dining room scene hooks me in every time! Very high recommendation!
I just saw it and I found it to be the very best I've seen in a very long time. I was concerned about whether he would get a nomination for this amazing performance---so happy to read that he did, indeed, get it.
Al Pacino finally gets his Oscar! That's the good news. The bad news is that this isn't what he should have won for. Don't get me wrong. This is not a bad film. In fact, it's pretty good. As expected, it is Pacino that carries the picture.
