A resonant Pacino...though ultimately a misfire, suggests that there are worse things to call a movie than 'a curiosity.' [DVD review]

Those who feel that Al Pacino did no wrong during the 1970s obviously never saw Bobby Deerfield.

Bobby Deerfield may turn out to be the year's most cynical movie made by people who know better, including Sydney Pollack, the director, and Alvin Sargent, who wrote the screenplay.

One of Sydney Pollack's worst films, this sechmaltzy romantic drama about the life and loves of a car racer (poorly played by Al Pacino) has no redeeming qualities in either length; Pollack recut the film to 99 minutes for TV.

A turgidly formulaic disease-of-the-week film elevated to cinematic status purely due to the presence of Pacino.

A classic example of a Hollywood director being struck down by a lethal 'art' attack as soon as he sets foot in Europe.

This gorgeously shot film is a trifle long at just over two hours; much of the racing footage could have been dispensed with, along with the sudsiest of the emotions.

Pacino is at his best: precise, internal, magnetically cute, and expert at capturing the fear in this man's turtle-like existence and his longing for change.

A brilliantly unusual love story, told in a European fashion which makes the Sydney Pollack film at first irritating, then intriguing, finally most rewarding and emotionally satisfying.
