AL PACINO This is a one hour documentary on Al that I got from a fellow fan. It is a great film, though unfortunately not available in the US that I know of. I don't know much about it except it was made in a foreign country and has subtitles (it is in English, the subtitles are a foreign language, German I think)(here are the titles: Canal+ AB Presents, Al Pacino, a coproduction, canal+ and capa production, a film by Mara Villiers and Alain Charlot). If anyone out there knows of a reliable place to order a copy please let me know.
