Netflix Musings: What I’ve Learnt from Al Pacino in “Scent of A Woman”
Finally got down to watching “Scent of A Woman”
Story was alright. I’m just so happy they had Al Pacino play the sensational Colonel Slade.
Mr Pacino was such a terrifying force in the movie.
Every time he spoke I was all ears; I gave him my absolute attention.
If you haven’t watched this movie and plan to do so, you can find it on Netflix.
But for now,🚨 SPOILERS ALERT!🚨
My favourite scene was the tango scene, of course.
I couldn’t help but smile like an idiot when Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar were dancing together.
During that scene, it was like he was temporarily released from whatever f*ckery he was chained to.
There was a light bounce to his character.
And it brought great relief to me.
Because…as much as he was a grumpy old cynic, I was rooting for him throughout the show.
But what really sealed the deal for me was this quote:
“No mistakes in the tango, Donna. Not like life. It’s simple. That’s what makes the tango so great.
If you make a mistake, get all tangled up, just tango on.”
It really showed you how battered up he felt and how hard he’s trying to cope.
