Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An affirmation that the director, Mike Newell, has a gift for talkative, intelligent films that make his actors shine.
Fresh: Pacino and Depp are a match made in acting heaven, riffing off each other with astonishing subtlety and wit.
Fresh: Pacino cans the showboating bluster and gives a gently nuanced portrait of a simple man in decline.
Fresh: Although perhaps familiar in its outer trappings, Pacino's fine work is the key to the film succeeding to the extent that it does.
