FILM / Inaction Man: Ahead of the opening of Carlito's Way, Giles Smith considers Al Pacino, the film star who does most when he does nothing
Tuesday 04 January 1994
Brian De Palma's Carlito's Way opens on Friday and it's your guess in what kind of shape it will find its star, Al Pacino. Roughly speaking, there was his Seventies phase, in which he impressed us. Then there was his Eighties phase, in which he embarrassed us. And now we're in his Nineties phase, in which he has impressed us (Godfather III) except when embarrassing us (Frankie and Johnny). It could go either way.
