Scarecrow (15)

Scarecrow (15)


Max, an ex-con drifter with a penchant for brawling is amused by Lion, a homeless ex-sailor, and they partner up as they head east together.

The critical consensus

Revived in a restored version to mark its 40th anniversary, it boasts two of the best performances that Hackman and Pacino ever gave.

*****Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 25/04/2013

This is a jewel of American cinema.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 25/04/2013

A poignant tale of lost souls from a golden age of US cinema.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 26/04/2013

It's great to see these actors in their formative years, but the film is to slack and undisciplined to serve their talents.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 25/04/2013

Gene Hackman and Al Pacino are a winning combination in Jerry Schatzberg's blue-collar road movie from 1973.
