I'd seen a few clips of this film and I feared it would be a bit schmaltzy. When I sat down and watched it from the beginning I saw it was brave, challenging, unpredictable, uncomfortable in places and thoroughly satisfying (which at well over two hours is pretty good going). I love Al Pacino, and I really enjoyed seeing him do something different to his gangster act. American film-making at its very best.
