Overview

...And Justice for All

Norman Jewison's blackly satirical look at the American justice system has gained in stature as one of the more incisive social commentaries of its time. Al Pacino plays Arthur Kirkland, an incorruptible attorney who attempts to initiate reforms in the Maryland justice system. Kirkland is haunted by the fates of two past clients, one of whom committed suicide in jail; the other is still alive but is locked up on a trumped-up traffic violation. The ability of power and money to distort the pursuit of justice becomes all too clear as Kirkland finds out how deeply the rot has spread. He is ultimately blackmailed into defending a repulsive judge (John Forsythe) accused of rape, and faces a crisis of conscience. Pacino's and Forsythe's performances are intense and powerful. Many critics found the film biting and almost painful in its razor-sharp indictment of the justice system, while others declared the script too outrageous.

America's justice system comes under indictment in director Norman Jewison's trenchant film starring Al Pacion as upstanding attorney Arthur Kirkland. A hard-line-- and tainted-- judge (John Forsythe) stands accused of rape, and Kirkland (Al Pacino) has to defend him. Kirkland has a history with the judge, who jailed one of the lawyer's clients on a technicality. When the judge, confesses his guilt, Kirkland faces an ethical and legal quandary. I think this movie is Outstanding because I like drama movies.

This is by far the best movie Al Pacino has ever been in. The movie takes you in so many different directions. The emotions it draws out are surprising.
