Tribute to the father of gangster movies and homage to an authentic and powerful man.
Instead of describing the career progression of Alfredo James “Al” Pacino, the following will highlight the most important movies and roles as well as brief reasons for watching them.
The Godfather – Michael Corleone [The movie teaches everything you need to know about family, loyalty and leadership].
Scarface – Tony Montana [The personification of the rags to riches story – motivates you to push it to the limit].
The Devil’s Advocate [Al Pacino plays Satan – main topic is seduction and sin: find out your own values].
Donnie Brasco [Classic movie featuring Johny Deep; fundament for all upcoming ganster movies; strong dialogues]
A man who doesn’t spent time with his family can never be a real man. (The Godfather)
You wanna fuck with me? Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. Say hello to my little friend! (Scarface)
A wise guy’s always right; even when he’s wrong, he’s right. (Donnie Brasco)
major contribution to slick man’s objectives:
All of Al Pacino’s movies have clear messages and address major principles of different life pillars: family, friendship, success, loyalty and leadership.
1 concrete benefit to my personal life:
I learned a lot about motivation from “Scarface” and how to accomplish thoughts and dreams through a clear focus of the mind by taking risks and sacrifices. The “Godfather” gave me a guideline for true friendship and solidarity within the family.
