Product description

Product Description

Idealistic young lawyer Arthur Kirkland (Al Pacino) is determined to bypass the topsy-turvy madness of the US legal system and do his best for his clients. However, Arthur's idealism takes a battering when he is pressured to defend a judge (John Forsythe) he knows to be guilty of raping a young girl. Arthur now has to make the most important choice of his life - the choice between his career and his conscience. Directed by Norman Jewison, with a screenplay by husband-and-wife writing team Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin.

From Amazon.co.uk

Al Pacino plays a Maryland lawyer who takes on a judicial system rife with deal making in And Justice for All, an awkward blend of satire and sentimentality. Topical director Norman Jewison can't seem to help Pacino get comfortable with the mismatched material, which pushes the film into outrageousness at some turns and mawkishness at others. The script by Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin is more an accumulation of random ideas and moments than a congruent story. However, it's interesting to see the large cast of good actors, most of whom were unknowns at the time including Christine Lahti who made her film debut here. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Interesting film massively let down by the ending, I normally keep my Al Pacino films but this one's going in the charity bag.

Before Al Pacino became bigger than the movies he appeared in, before he became a parody of Al Pacino, he produced work like "and justice for all".
Aside from being a deeply disturbing, at times pathetic, at times humourous protrayal of the corruption and inertia of the legal system, Pacino hands in a dynamic and dramatic performance as idealistic layer Arthur Kirkland. Kirkland truly believes in the rule of law, that everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, regardless of social status, and that there should be "justice for all".
It is such integrity that leads him to represent corrupt lawyer John Forsythe. (Charlie's Angels "Charlie", /Blake Carrington for "Dynasty"). And there his troubles start.
Along side a sucidal judge, a deeply troubled legal partner, a girlfriend whose professional commitment rivals Joseph McCarthy, and a family background which sees him struggling with absentee parents and an alzheimers Lee Strasberg, Arthur Kirkland's life is not plain sailing. Although, from the outset, we as an audience are with him, understand his straightforward professional and personal ethics of honesty, and cheer with him to the last as we see how one man can indeed fight city hall, and come out intact.
The beauty of this film is not merely Pacino's performance which is indeed credible and magnificent,and pre-dates "Al Pacino Movie Star" - but is reflective of life. Puzzling, comic, dramatic, heart breaking, and all at once redemptive.

This 114 min REGION B/2 DVD was one of the discs from Al Pacino six box collection that I purchased from Amazon. The film was good and had an epic performance from Al Pacino who dominated the storyline. It is also a film that has no adult scenes and very little bad language.
In a criminal justice system where lawyers and judges make unscrupulous deals, the guilty sometimes walk free, and the innocent go unprotected. Young lawyer Arthur Kirkland (Al Pacino) - whose grandfather paid for him to attend law school - begins to wonder if there is any justice in the legal system. Faced with the biggest moral dilemma of his career, Arthur must decide if he'll defend an unethical judge, who he knows is guilty of an unthinkable crime, or if he can help justice finally prevail in a flawed system.

Al pacinos career was still in its infancy when he made this,i believe this was his ninth film,dont quote me on that,the year was 1979 and the director was the very capable norman jewison.The film looks at whats wrong with the legal system and for the most part has a very serious,dark view on it,some laughs are oddly thrown in which upsets the balance slightly,some work and some seem quite slapstick when positioned among the turmoils and chaos and the moral message which is there for all to see.
The film details a lawyer called arthur kirkland played by pacino who wants to be the best lawyer he can be and buys into the idea that everyone deserves a fair trial no matter what,when he is asked to defend a judge who he hates and suspects may be guilty then he has some tough decisions to make.
There is a good support cast who all play their part in helping pacino make up his mind on whats best even if it costs him everything,i found the film to be brave yet awkward in places with great performances and a good message,not a masterpiece but a good show nonetheless.

This is Al Pacino doing what Al Pacino does best, taking on roles where morality finds itself on a tightrope. Pacino brings alot of passion to his role while he is ably supported by the likes of Craig T Nelson, John Forysthe and Lee Strasberg who you may remember was the brillaint Jewish mobster in Godfather II.

The story is complex and ropes in everything you usually get with courtroom dramas. Alot of the motivations for the characters are fleshed through their various rows and arguments with Pacino's boy scout like attorney character, Kirland.

Pacino's speech is amazing at the end and a piece of film history in my view. Its a massive swerve and the ending of the movie brings another (far more subtle) swerve.

Overall the film is well worth watching. But some may find the slapstick nature of one of the other judges characters odd in particular. It seems out of sync and to be honest its an odd mashup trying to fit comedy into a hard hitting courtroom drama. My own personal gripe is with the music, its mostly horrible and doesnt set the tone properly in any way having a kind of lightheaded zany feel. Its magic mushroom stuff really.

Overall, great actors, story, direction and themes explored. 9/10

I’m old enough to remember seeing this shouting-match-in-the courtroom farce at the cinema in Dublin when it first came out in 1979. I still remember the brill barters between the judge and pain-in-the-ass lawyer Al Pacino. And I remember the audience leaving with a beam on their face and a pep in their step…

What a bummer therefore to find that the American BLU RAY issue on Image Entertainment is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

I wish someone would end the restrictions of Region Coding because cult fun watches like “And Justice For All” just go amiss because of it...
