And Justice For All

  • Genre : Drama
  • Written By : Valerie Curtin, Barry Levinson
  • Directed By : Norman Jewison
  • Release Date : June 29, 1979
  • Running Time : 119 Minutes
Al Pacino, Jack Warden, John Forsythe, Lee Strasberg, Christine Lahti

Al Pacino is Arthur Kirkland, a sharp defence lawyer with a heart, who is dealing with a witch-hunting ethics tribunal, crazy and arrogant judges, an ill grandfather, a law partner (Tambor) on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and a new relationship. He definitely did not need the crazy new case that lands on his lap in the form of his least favourite judge, Henry T. Fleming. Soon, Arthur is faced with some decisions that will challenge his beliefs and affect his future.

My Review
I was deeply moved by Al Pacino's portray of Arthur Kirkland as he defends his clients through the hardships and corruption of the court.
The movie was interesting on my part, just if u are looking for a "Court Drama" movie, this is not it because this is a movie telling the immorality that could happen in court and anywhere else, it also shows how it could affect people's lives.
Well in this movie, Al Pacino had his finest acting moments and truly define acting in a way that I could say MAGNIFICENT.
You might also recognize one of Al Pacino's most memorable line, "You're out of order! This whole trial is out of order!", definitely a must watch scene.
The only downside to the movie for me was, I thought it was gonna be a "Court Drama" type movie and so I just wasn't satisfied that the movie didn't show on him getting enough evidence on his cases but all and all, it was a fantastic movie

My Recommendations
