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

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (214 movies items)

"24.1 Lisää Lumet'n tuotantoa, kun huomasin tallettaneeni tämän Teemalta. Pacinolta poikkeuksellisesti lahjomattoman kytän rooli ja elokuva jälleen kerran pohjautuu tositapahtumiin, jossa käsitellään 70-luvun näkökulmasta tuoretta aihetta, eli poliisivoimien korruptiota. Nykymittapuulla auttamattoman vanhentunut ja päätäsärkevän kliseinen premissi ei oikein tee katselusta erityisen nautittavaa. Pahasti ylipitkä. New Yorkin rähjäiset kadut eivät ole tässä mitään Taksikuski"

" Notes: I think that 'Dog Day Afternoon', which Lumet made 2 years later also with Al Pacino, is superior but it is still a fine picture. To start up, it is rather fascinating story, albeit depressing, but still very interesting. It is basically what happens when you give an average guy a gun and some power, there is a fair chance that they will abuse it. In my opinion, the greatest asset in this movie is Frank Serpico himself. Indeed, he is such an interesting character, even if you would remo"
