People I Know


Eli Wurman (Al Pacino) is a PR man lost in a moral fug with prescription medication his only compass. He attempts to redeem himself by channelling his considerable talent for bullshit into the promotion of a gala dinner for a pair of immigrants facing deportation from the US. Five paces behind, an absurd, inconsequential murder-mystery limps along...

Pacino, dishevelled and furrowed, stumbles through the movie like a pot-addled Columbo. The only mystery here is who stole the spark from screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz's script. Too lax to be a thriller and too prone to rambling to critique celeb culture, People I Know ends up scrabbling around for meaning in a steaming pool of runny dialogue.
