    Riley Keough looks like she’ll have a decent role. Predict her to get her overdue Emmy nomination.

    Please be better than The Wizard of Lies, please just be better than The Wizard of Lies, that is all! Same director, another actor from Godfather Part II and legend of gangster movies, please just let this one actually be watchable.

    I really want this to be better than “The Wizard of Lies” and ” The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”. Those were letdowns for me

    Hoping (3 time Emmy winner…in case people have forgotten) Kathy Baker gets a meaty role with this film. She hasn’t made much of an impact on the small screen in the past decade.

    Debuts with 66 on Metacritic from five reviews.  Riley Keough is getting praise, but it does not seem like enough to transcend the general apathy toward the film, so I am regrettably removing her from my predictions.

    Al Pacino giving another Al Pacino performance? Yuck. I’ll pass.

    Al Pacino giving another Al Pacino performance? Yuck. I’ll pass.

    It’s Robert De Niro all over again, isn’t it? De Nero did De Niro in Wizard of Lies, it sounds like Pacino is doing the usual Pacino shtick in this, without anything particularly standout. It’s tough, because they’re excellent performers, who are consistently excellent, so more is expected of them, when they show up. However, a weak script, and lazy direction, sound like it could be the death knell for any chances Paterno had.

    I’m certain Pacino and the movie will be nominated. I’d probably still put Keough with a fighting chance, because that category is a wasteland, but I’d drop any likelihood that noms can turn into wins, with that kind of lukewarm response at this stage.

    I feel like Riley Keough could realistically get in as a “coattails” nominee like how Michelle Pfeiffer rode in on De Niro’s coattails last year. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie in spite of how uneven Barry Levinson has been as a filmmaker.

    Yeah, I hope she can still sneak in considering the category is still wide open.

    As for Al Pacino, of course he will be nominated, but he already has two Emmys so I’m rooting for him not to win. Voters are past the era of just name-checking movie stars in mediocre TV Movies. Robert DeNiro couldn’t even win, and unlike Pacino, he had never even won an Emmy before. Plus, Pacino has lost before (recently for that Phil Spector movie on HBO), so he can lose again.

    Another ten reviews have brought it up to 70.

    This kinda sucked lol. Pacino did nothing special. Keough was good. Thought this was a bore though.

    Ok so I kinda liked this movie and it looks like Pacino was actually trying again! A hell of a lot better than De Niro in The Wizard of Lies. Riley Kenough and the one who played his son were the standouts to me though. My grade: B+

    Riveting! I was brought to tears by the film. Sleep on this ALL you want to, but it’s coming for its deserved Emmys. Pacino and Keough were both excellent and can expect acting nods. More later.
