Good Story, Terrible Execution.

I love Al Pacino, he's a great actor and he filmed this movie right after the Godfather, and it was critically acclaimed at the time, and had a big impact overall, because it was the first movie of it's kind to target police corruptions, and it's based on a true story of Frank Serpico, a good cop trying to do his job in a world full of corruptions and bribes, trying his hardest to stay away from c... read more

A classic

I had already seen this movie before but I thought it was really time for a re-watch. Sidney Lumet had a rather productive career managing to direct more than 40 movies, some major classics, some major bombs and a whole bunch of really obscure features. However, there is no doubts that this movie definitely belongs to his masterpieces. To be honest, I still think that 'Dog Day Afternoon', which L... read more

Katsotut 2016 (235 movies items)

20 Classic Films Not Nominated For Best Picture (20 movies items)

"This sublimely gritty, extremely 1970s take on the true story of New York City cop Frank Serpico (Al Pacino) who blew the whistle on the corruption and graft going on within his own department and paid a heavy price for it, did get nominated for both Screenplay and Best Actor for Pacino. But the fact that not only did it not get a Best Picture nod the year that "A Touch of Class," "American Graffiti" and eventual winner "The Sting" did (we're not complaining about "The Exorcist" and "Cries and W"
