Flick Pick: Scent Of A Woman

Scent Of A Woman
(Universal, 1992)

Phenomenal Martin Brest drama that finally brought Al Pacino a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar, introduced audiences to the talents of Chris O'Donnell, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Brad Whitford, and in a truly magical tango scene, Gabrielle Anwar. The movie is a triumph, scoring blockbuster status, and deservedly nominated for the usual major awards. But the movie is overwhelmingly a tour-de-force for Pacino, finally and unquestionably putting him on the top tier of actors for all time. Hooah.
