Excerpt: No sense reviewing the movie since if you are considering buying this you have probably seen it and love it, as I do. I have no qualms saying that I think the site review maybe undersells the picture quality here. If I could give it 4.75 stars, that would be ideal.
Summary: Hoo-ah! Scent of a Woman is an interesting movie. It s a showcase for Al Pacino, and a reason to give him an Oscar. It throws in some life messages and themes to seem important, and gives Al some good quips to make about prep school life.
Summary: Charming, funny, and powerful, Scent of a Woman is a good film anchored by a legendary performance from Al Pacino. Without him, this film would be nothing extraordinary. But, with him, it is elevated significantly.
Summary: The plot is pathetic, Al Pacino overacts beyond description and they might as well have cast a wooden pinnate to play Charlie Simms. One of the worst films to ever be nominated for best picture.
Summary: Beautiful film. Pacino's magnum opus. His cantankerous, wise, and somewhat sadistic character surprisingly is a likable one. He plays it to a whole new standard. The performance is a masterpiece of cinema. Loved it the whole time.
Excerpt: After his defining role as Michael Corleone in The Godfather Trilogy, his turn as a gangster in Scarface, acting legend Al Pacino finally got his best actor win for playing Lt. Col. Frank Slade in this now classic 1992 gem SCENT OF A WOMAN.
Summary: The film has a great story and fully developed characters. It also contains one of Pacino's best performances ever. A well deserved win for Best Actor. The blind colonel, is a truly memorable character. The speech he gives, in the films ending, delivers the right amount of inspiration.
