FAMILIAR NEW YORK STORY
Inspired by the SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS and THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES, this labour of love is the sort of film made for New Yorkers by New Yorkers. While not being particularly fresh in it’s ideas and story, PEOPLE I KNOW more than makes up for it’s short comings due in large part to another strong turn by Al Pacino.
Pacino is surprisingly gentle and small as a has-been impresario who is desperate for one last benefit to do some good in the city. Why exactly this benefit means so much to him is never really explained but Pacino, with that wonderful expressive face of his, is content to carry the drama with subtly and grace, using those great bags under his eyes to convey a sense of pleading exhaustion throughout the film. In many scenes, his character seems so fatigued that we expect Pacino to expire on the spot, so heavy is the burden of his life lived as a heel.
The script, by New York playwright Jon Robin Baitz, knows it’s world well, as demonstrated by the excellent lead characters and the numerous small, but equally well conceived characters that pepper the screenplay. Plot-wise the Baitz’s script is less than successful. The screenplay suffers from two well-meaning maguffins – Pacino’s big benefit and the `toy’ Tea Leoni finds – which don’t really pay dividends and lead the film to a somewhat flat finale.
The direction by SEX IN THE CITY helmer Daniel Algrant is unobtrusive and safe, with no real effort made to assemble this film in anything higher than TV movie quality. Algrant is content to keep attention on his cast, which – when dealing with Al Pacino – is never a bad idea.
Almost as bad as “S1m0ne” — don’t waste your time.
I rented this movie based on the strength of the cast — Pacino, Schiff, Leoni, and Bassinger should make for a decent film. Unfortunately, this wasn’t.
Horrible movie. Hollow acting — Al Pacino is to the point of almost phoning his lines in, although the supporting cast did well with what little they were given, especially Tea Leoni.
We’re only teased a bit with slightest bit of intrigue, the story advances only in jerky motions, and once the character has been developed enough, you find you really don’t care that much for him. The rest is pretty much self-absorbed crybaby antics.
And the ending — well, what a complete cop-out. Foreign film buffs may be mildly interested in this movie, but the producers fail to realize it’s called the ‘entertainment industry’ for a reason, and this fails to entertain.
Ultimately, this film is a narcissistic exercise in self-loathing, which you won’t come away from enlightened or entertained, and that makes for two hours of your life you won’t get back.
