    This film was panned when it was released in 1990, probably because of Warren Beatty's ego and obsessive vision (he wanted to replicate the look of color comics, down to matching reds and yellows), but it's entertaining nonetheless and worth viewing. Dustin Hoffman has a brief role as the unintelligible Mumbles, but it's Al Pacino who steals the show as Big Boy Caprice. Pacino is as emotive and overwrought as ever, but here he's playing a comic and campy role, for which he was deservedly nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor (he lost). Madonna is terrific as torch singer Breathless Mahoney.

    I remember no one liking this movie when it originally came out - Warren Beatty is nuts, Madonna is a hack, etc etc. But you know what? I watched it again recently, and then I watched it again, and then I watched on scene over again - and it's awesome. It captures the half-childlike, half noirish quality of golden age comics, and it's great.

    This action adventure film features celebrities like Al Pacino and Madonna AND it was also nominated for some Academy Awards.
