And Justice For All (1979)



Reviews and Comments

The justice system gets twisted all around when a corrupt judge is accused of rape. He seeks out the most ethical lawyer he can find (Al Pacino) and threatens to disbar him if he won't take the case for the defense. Although the script isn't quite as sharp as it should be with a great premise like this, it does offer a more nuanced view of legal corruption than movies normally offer. It also gives Al Pacino a great opportunity for the powerhouse acting only he can deliver.
