Scarecrow (1973)

Watching for my The Complete Pacino list.

This is a much better film than I originally gave it credit for on first viewing, in large part due to the great performances by Hackman and Pacino. The characters are not that likeable but both actors bring a touch of humanity to them as they struggle with whatever life throws at them. I’m surprised this film isn’t better known.

An understated Al, demonstrating his skills in physical comedy, which we don’t often get to see.
