Audience Reviews for People I Know

    An interesting film.

    Though the films themselves stylistically are completely different, the basic plots of "People I Know" and "Carlito's Way" are the same. Here, rather than a gangster, Pacino plays a burnt-out publicist eager to escape his shady way of life but, like Carlito, doomed never to do so. The story doesn't ever really get going but the acting is an absolute treat, with Pacino giving an immaculate performance, truly one of his finest ever.

    Man, didn't have high hopes for this movie which was a good thing. This is one of the lesser known Pacino movies and for a good reason; it wasn't any good. Pacino did some okay acting, nice to see him play the old helpless role, but nothing really to see here, from anyone.
