Yes, they are out to get you.
Al Pacino is riddled with paranoia as a straight-arrow cop who sinks into the mire, ratting out fellow boys in blue while always expecting a bullet.
Based on real events, Sidney Lumet’s lacerating tale of good guys gone bad remains one of the seminal ’70s films, and for good reason.
As a man who refuses the offer to sell his soul, Pacino notched the second of his nine Oscar nominations.
That landed him in a Best Actor death cage match featuring Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson, and winner Jack Lemmon.
