...And Justice For All, (1979)
I just watched this classic Pacino movie (directed by Norman Jewison) for the first time. If you haven't seen it, it's where the line "I'm out of order? You're out of order, the whole courtroom's out of order..." comes from. There are a bunch of funny characters in the movie (Jack Warden, Jeffrey Tambor, Uncle Junior from the Sopranos) and the disco soundtrack is awesome. The opening title sequence music is the kind of music that I imagine is playing whenever lawyers enter a courtroom. The story flips back and forth between comedy and tragedy and pretty much every extreme of judicial injustice occurs in about a week's time. In summary, this is Pacino back when it's cool that he's yelling, and this is a movie that all of you want to watch.
