How have I only just seen this film?! #thepanicinneedlepark #alpacino

Have u seen this powerful movie? Cause I did

#alpacino #thepanicinneedlepark

TITLE: The Panic in Needle Park
I've seen plenty of films tackle drug addiction. It's a heavy topic, and when handled correctly, can really run through you. I myself am not a drug addict, but I've known some, and lived with one (this is the part where Movies4life17 gets serious sorry), so I can really tell you when a movie accurately depicts drug addiction.
#ThePanicinNeedlePark accurately handles drug addiction.
At times, perhaps too accurately. I admit that certain moments in "The Panic in Needle Park" can come across as a PSA. But man, what a PSA.
"The Panic in Needle Park," at times, gets under your skin, which has to be the point. There are a few moments here where #JerrySchatzberg provides close-ups of these characters injecting themselves and shooting up. And boy, if #RequiemforaDream didn't do the trick already, this movie did the trick even further.
At the root of this addiction story though is the relationship between Bobby and Helen. When they first meet, he's an addict, and she isn't. But it isn't before long that she gets pulled into his world and ends up down the same path.
It's a story that feels all too real, and as played by #AlPacino and #KittyWinn (whoever that is), they sell it beautifully.
The film ends on a note of awkward tension, but yet an understanding. He made her life hell, so she's gonna do the same.
The characters don't really learn much by the end of "The Panic in Needle Park." They probably continue doing their business. And yet that's what still makes it effective. The fact that even through all that, they probably won't give it up. That's the frightening truth of addiction.
GRADE: A-
👍🏻

Just finished Griffin Dunn’s mesmerizing Netflix documentary on Joan Didion. Love the intimate footage of the writer reading to her daughter Quintana. Heartbreaking. #thepanicinneedlepark #theyearofmagicalthinking #joandidion #joandidionthecenterwillnothold @griffindunne 📖🖋💔📹

MOST RECENT

Such a seriously underrated movie.

Keith Richards ran into his friend Jerry Schatzberg at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival. "Hey, man, you into the hard stuff?" Richards asked, patting his own arm. Equally praised and reviled for its intense realism, Schatzberg's film, The Panic In Needle Park, had KEITH FUCKING RICHARDS convinced that it came from personal experience. Schatzberg did not have an addiction; he was just a dedicated director who put every possible detail into his movies. Telling the story again years later, he added, "I could probably do a film with a woman having a baby and I can't do that either. It's just research and going into it, and getting into the world." 🎬

This is my 200th post so I wanted to post a special picture. The whole thing was on two separate pages so I tried to edit them together best I could. May retry later but I hope this is good enough for now!!.

Even up until a few years ago at least, Jerry Schatzberg STILL wanted to make a sequel to Scarecrow. Jerry, can you just tell us what would happen already?!? I need to make sure my baby Lion has a happy ending 😩😩. I have an ending made up in my head 😉.

To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves - there lies the great, singular power of self-respect. Happy Birthday #joandidion

“The Panic in Needle Park”. At the time of its release, and at least up to that point, it was the first film to show up close the injection of a needle into the skin. It was even banned in the UK for four years due to its graphic depiction of drug use. The film also was stripped of the intended musical score which I think elevates the overall grungy feel. // Have you seen this cult classic and what do you think of it??!! // #alpacino #actor #icon #inspiration #legend #kittywinn #thepanicinneedlepark #jerryschatzberg #director #classic #70s #film // .💉

With Robert Evans at the premiere for The Godfather. You can't help but wonder how Evans must feel now and in this picture after trying so hard to reject Al as Michael Corleone 😂😂.

This is one of a couple interviews that Kitty Winn gave after The Panic In Needle Park came out. This isn't my scan, but I thought it was interesting that she handled all the press for it when she didn't want anything to do with fame. This fact comes up every time. She only did a few movies and TV shows after that, all supporting roles, before dropping out completely in the mid-80s. Her most recent performance onstage was in 2011, after a 33-year break! 👏 Links to this and others are in my bio. 🖤

Sorry my captions are never interesting. I know to most people they're more important than the picture even though Instagram was created for pictures lol. But anyway I wore one of my (yes I own two different versions 😂😂) "Mrs. Al Pacino" shirts out and about today. I had one woman ask me why I had the shirt so I told her he was my favorite actor and I love him and she said "I'm so happy that young people like you appreciate Al Pacino!" That totally made my day. And I talked to another woman about Serpico! Enjoy double the Al 😁. You know I love Bobby and Michael.

If you wince your way through the injection scenes in The Panic In Needle Park (like I do), you're not alone: Kitty Winn was doing the same thing. 😵 Although they only used sugar water, a needle is still a needle, and she found it hard to relax during the scene where Bobby shoots Helen up. She insisted that it be done in one take and that they use her real arm -- No doubles!

At Lee Strasberg's birthday party. Also my mom's ex boyfriend went to the Actors Studio and slept on Lee's couch so I'm sure he knew Al 😣😣. She also got to go to the Daytime Emmys with him. So unfair.

"One day, when I was five or six, I was playing a character from some movie I had just seen. I was all alone, as usual, and suddenly I stopped. 'This is wrong,' I said to myself. 'I'm too good. Nobody is THIS good!'" You are correct, six year old Al 😉.

I swear I fall in love with this man more every day even though I have no idea how that's possible. He means so damn much to me and inspires me such much, I can't explain.

How have I only just seen this film?! #thepanicinneedlepark #alpacino

With Susan Tyrrell in Camino Real (1970). I don't care how many times I see the Camino Real pictures pop up, I love them so much so I have to post them 😁😁. Also I miss doing theater so much 😩😩. I was a member of the International Thespian Society in high school actually 😅😅😅

Michael in suspenders 🖒🖒. I think it's hilarious how hypocrital people act when it comes to their opinions about Michael. One day they'll talk about how evil he is, then the next go on about how he's just so complex and an enigma and how you can sympathize with him. They'll complain about people loving him and romanticizing him and if you love Michael then you only love Al for his looks because Michael is just so eeevil and then right after that talk about once again how he's so great and complex and how much they wanna sleep with him. The say stuff like oh Michael beats his wife then call Michael and Kay relationship goals and make excuses for or ignore the slap scene. I feel like I get bitched at the most for "romanticizing" Michael even though everyone does it and ESPECIALLY the people who get mad at me for doing it. Well that's my rant for the week 😂😂.

Al presenting the award for Best Actress in a Play at the 1974 Tony Awards on April 21st 1974 (aka 4 days before Al's 34th birthday and my birthday is April 22nd but I wasn't born for another 19 years 😁😁)

This is just pure perfection. I may try to rescan it in the near future to see if I can prevent the back of the page from showing. But for now...enjoy 😜.

Currently watching my most frequently watched Pacino movie 😁😁. I literally have to watch at least one scene of it everyday not joking 😂😂 but watching the whole thing now. Kitty Winn is one lucky girl.

Al Pacino Movie Night. 📽 #thepanicinneedlepark

NYPD: Deadly Circle Of Violence. Also first on camera acting role. Also Jill is pretty much the luckiest woman ever. Getting to date Al while he was Michael Francis Corleone? Um life goal. Also it's below freezing where I am so Al should come warm me up lol.
