Al Pacino Nails It
Hollywood legend Al Pacino admits he hasn’t made a good movie in 30 years.
The actor believes he peaked in 1975 movie Dog Day Afternoon and hasn’t had a decent role since, despite the four Academy Award nominations and one win – for 1992s Scent of Woman – he has achieved since.
He tells the New York Daily News, “I know I haven’t made a good film since Dog Day Afternoon.
“Somebody at a press conference once asked me, ‘Do you think you’ll ever be as good as you were in ‘Dog Day’?’ and I said flatly, ‘No.’ That answered that.”
As one who sees little brilliance in Scarface, this seems spot on to me. In fact, Pacino’s name on the marquee is generally enough to keep me from seeing a film.
