Al Pacino hit the Venice Film Festival with two new movies, swinging and hitting with one, while whiffing on the other. Barry Levinson's "The Humbling" fills out the latter category (read our review), while David Gordon Green's latest "Manglehorn" is the hit, with the film showing us a whole other side to Pacino than we're used to these days. And with this first clip, you get a really nice taste of the actor in a much more dialed down mode.

Magnolia "Manglehorn"

Al Pacino hit the Venice Film Festival with two new movies, swinging and hitting with one, while whiffing on the other. Barry Levinson's "The Humbling" fills out the latter category (read our review), while David Gordon Green's latest "Manglehorn" is the hit, with the film showing us a whole other side to Pacino than we're used to these days. And with this first clip, you get a really nice taste of the actor in a much more dialed down mode.

Co-starring Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine and Chris Messina, the movie tells the story of an aging Texas locksmith, still pining for the love of his life while making his way in a small town. And you can get a great sense of the film's low key nature in this lovely scene with Pacino and Hunter, the latter playing a bank teller with whom the titular protagonist has a warm relationship. And it all culminates in a movie that our Jessica Kiang says " gently dazzles" in her review.

There's no U.S. distribution yet for "Manglehorn," but we're sure it's just a matter of time. Watch below.
