Martin Brest United States, 1992

Subterranean Cinema's rating of the film Scent of a Woman

Pacino gives what could be THE most overrated film performance of all time, it's one of his alltime worst. He seems to say "hoo-ah" more times than Tony Montana said the F word, to the point that it becomes irritating self-parody, and his blankly staring attempt at portraying blindness comes off as totally false. I think he got the Oscar because they felt he was overdue for one, not because he deserved it. He didnt.
