Hell of a good movie!
Has anyone watched the movie that doesn't remember the cult remarks: "Vanity is definitely my favorite sin" or "Do we negotiate - Always!" and definitely "I'm a humanist! I'm a fan of man."
Cast & Plot
Al Pacino, Keanu Reeves, Charlize Theron - the star team did their best, so much so that I personally sometimes forget that Keanu and Charlize are partnering in another movie - Sweet November!
Young provincial lawyer Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) has never lost a case. He gets the chance of his life when he is spotted and hired by a major law firm in New York. The lawyer and his wife (Charlize Theron) are leaving for the Big Apple with the hope of a better life. They are bombarded with attention, money and luxury. Another question is what they get because Chief Kevin (Al Pacino) turns out to be the Devil himself ...
5 Star Movie
Production designer Bruno Rubéo is tasked with creating Milton's apartment, striving for a "very laid-back and very sexy" look.
The Fifth Avenue Trump Tower Penthouse was used for photos of Alexander Cullen's residence
The interior of the Church of Heavenly Rest in New York was used for the scene where Lomax's wife says Milton raped her. The exterior of the Central Presbyterian Church was filmed for Eddie Barzun's funeral, while Pacino was filmed at Holy Redeemer's Manhattan Church for the boiling of the holy water.
And when I think about it, the evening is perfect for me to revisit it, with a glass of wine, to reflect a bit on the human mission here on this earth ... to rejoice the talented actors and see again those wonderful haloes with ornaments and statues in Devil's top luxury penthouse apartment :))) Ehhh, vanity, vanity ...
