Contains three films directed by Al Pacino never before available on DVD CHINESE COFFEE, THE LOCAL STIGMATIC and LOOKING FOR RICHARD.

CHINESE COFFEE: This riveting film version of a poignant play about artistic jealousy features an outstanding performance by Pacino.

THE LOCAL STIGMATIC: Class wars take on a frightening, violent tone in this tense drama.

LOOKING FOR RICHARD: One of Shakespeare's most challenging plays is explored and brought to life by an all-star cast.

This collection also includes the bonus DVD Babbleonia, Pacino's engaging retrospective on his early years as an actor, achieving stardom and his foray into directing.

Editor's Note
THE LOCAL STIGMATIC: An early entry in Al Pacino's ouevre, this short film follows two lower-class but intelligent men, Graham (Pacino) and Ray (Paul Guilfoyle, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION) on a day of dog races, drinking, and, eventually, violence. Based on a play by Heathcoate Williams, this intense film investigates the roles of fame and envy in the life of the common man.

CHINESE COFFEE: Based on a play by the same name, CHINESE COFFEE explores the friendship between a writer, Harry (Al Pacino), and a failed photographer, Jake (Jerry Orbach). Harry arrives at his longtime friend Jake's place late one night, hoping to collect on a debt, and to find out Jake's opinion of his latest novel. Jake is less than forthcoming, but over the course of the evening reveals the results of a lifetime of envy, regret, and destruction.

LOOKING FOR RICHARD: Part classical performance and part examination of Shakespearean dramaturgy, this acclaimed film features Pacino as both director and star of a production of RICHARD III. Scenes from the play are interspersed with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with such Shakespearean heavy hitters as Sir John Gielgud, Kenneth Branagh and Derek Jacobi. Other appearances include James Earl Jones, Kevin Kline, and Vanessa Redgrave.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
[Richard] We pick up history and familiarity as we go along, and if we are lucky we eventually see the majesty, the humor, the sadness, the insight and the wisdom. Looking for Richard' is the portrait of a man and his friends doing just that. Having chosen to be actors, they know they cannot respect their craft without embracing its greatest writer. Having chosen to be readers and viewers, we cannot do less, and this film is a delightful inspiration. - Roger Ebert
