Chinese Coffee Reviews:

This is the only film I've ever gone to see twice at a movie festival. It played in Toronto at the 2000 movie festival, and my mate and I talked about it for hours afterwards. It's an invigorating movie, based on the enjoy by Ira Lewis, about two bohemian guys, approaching 50, adrift in the early 80's, yet stuck in the past.It's a "talkie" film that should enjoy on a double-bill with "My Dinner With Andre", a two-hander about a ebook Pacino has written and the first encounter with his friend, played by Jerry Orbach, since the Pacino hero has lent it to him. But it's about so much more than that: it's about writing, dreaming, the constructive process, relationships, loneliness, poverty, and finally, values. There isn't a moment that we're not involved with these two guys as they negotiate their relationship. The script crackles with life and wit, observation and nuance. Pacino first directed the nice documentary "Looking For Richard", about how to approach staging a Shakespeare play. And here in "Chinese Coffee" he proves once again that he has a natural ability to say a storyline in a fully new and interesting way, gratis of the constraints and pettiness of a routine plot.If you're an actor and you haven't seen this movie, than shame on you, this one will have you going for days. And you'll return to it, too. It's a buried treasure in a nice career for Pacino. I can't suggest it any higher.


Well I just loved the Chinese Coffee for its brilliant acting and direction. It reminded me of the theater of the Absurd in a strange haunting way! With Chinese Coffee Mr. Pacino surpasses his own status of being a stellar performer & a superstar combined and cements his position as one of the best artists of all times. The tone of the film is intimate and artistic at times a tiny dark. I loved the stream of Levine's consciousness which makes the audiences look into his past---his hopes & failures. Pacino is brilliant as a middle aged struggling writer who is haunted by his own past, his parents' and his own shortcomings and aspirations. Kudos to Mr. Pacino for providing us with such a brilliant artistic piece! He truly is a gem of an artist. Love him! God bless!


For his 2nd movie, Al gives us an unusual movie, maybe imperfect but original and fully personal. We are far away of a large production and large problems as the film is a nightly discussion between two mates that have true troubles to live with their art. Honestly, I see no difference between this fiction hero and the true Al that was unveiled in his first movie: Al is a easy guy that loves NYC and his passion is more for scene than acting. Nowadays when stars are obsessed with their look, Al just doesn't care, even if his bent attitude and ugly clothes, he may look as a tramp. It's funny to see that getting older, he has gone from godfather, mayor, the devil to lefty, Shylock and this penniless beret writer! In a funny way, he's like an old Serpico who hadn't leave his basement accommodation! However, inside, he's still the same nice guy: supportive, useful but sometimes a bit grumpy and everytime ready to scream! But, what the heck, we are humans so imperfect and it's better to be straight and noisy than devious and smiling! Thus, even if the scene is minimal and narrow, we have access to all those nuances from Al and his buddy is nice to share the ball. There are even funny moments and a nice reflexion about artists' condition. In a way, Al didn't look for large results but true, easy moments. It may be a waste but finally, it's like you can share a evening with him, talking about life and nothing, and thus it's infinitely valuable.
