Dir. Sidney Lumet. 1973, 130 mins. 35mm. With Al Pacino. New York Film Critics Circle named Bronx-born Al Pacino the year’s best actor for his performance as the whistle-blowing “hippie” detective Frank Serpico, real-life hero of the Knapp Commission Hearings into police corruption, which convulsed the city in late 1970 and precipitated the biggest shake-up in the history of the NYPD. “A galvanizing and disquieting film,” per The New York Times critic Vincent Canby.
