…AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
1979, Sony Repertory, 119 min, USA, Dir: Norman Jewison

“You're out of order! You're out of order! The whole trial is out of order!” Al Pacino stars as Arthur Kirkland, who has seen some of the worst abuses of the courtroom in his 12 years as a defense attorney. Nonetheless he continues to fight passionately for his clients - but is thrown for a loop when one of them is a judge (John Forsythe) who has clashed with Kirkland in the past. Pacino’s tour de force performance earned an Oscar nomination, as did Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin’s original screenplay. A still-relevant skewering of the American legal system, …AND JUSTICE FOR ALL boasts a fine supporting cast including Jack Warden, Christine Lahti, Jeffrey Tambor and Lee Strasberg.

ICEMAN

In this thought-provoking sci-fi drama, anthropologist Stanley Shephard (Timothy Hutton) is summoned to an Arctic base when a Neanderthal man is discovered frozen in a glacier. As the scientists thaw the body, the man (an Oscar-worthy John Lone) is resuscitated – and at risk of becoming a guinea pig for research unless Shephard intervenes.
