The Panic in Needle Park

The Panic in Needle Park ★★★★

There is no music in this movie. The ceaseless car horns, clanking metal, and bumbling footsteps serve as the perfect sountrack for the story of two nobodies in a city of millions, trying to find their essence in a needle.

This was Al Pacino’s first leading role, and his most important one apparently. He is terrific, and got cast in The Godfather because of it.
