Movie Info

THE LOCAL STIGMATIC: An early entry in Al Pacino's ouevre, this short film follows two lower-class but intelligent men, Graham (Pacino) and Ray (Paul Guilfoyle, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION) on a day of dog races, drinking, and, eventually, violence. Based on a play by Heathcoate Williams, this intense film investigates the roles of fame and envy in the life of the common man.CHINESE COFFEE: Based on a play by the same name, CHINESE COFFEE explores the friendship between a writer, Harry (Al Pacino), and a failed photographer, Jake (Jerry Orbach). Harry arrives at his longtime friend Jake's place late one night, hoping to collect on a debt, and to find out Jake's opinion of his latest novel. Jake is less than forthcoming, but over the course of the evening reveals the results of a lifetime of envy, regret, and destruction.LOOKING FOR RICHARD: Part classical performance and part examination of Shakespearean dramaturgy, this acclaimed film features Pacino as both director and star of a production of RICHARD III. Scenes from the play are interspersed with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with such Shakespearean heavy hitters as Sir John Gielgud, Kenneth Branagh and Derek Jacobi. Other appearances include James Earl Jones, Kevin Kline, and Vanessa Redgrave.
