Trailer: Al Pacino searching for Oscar Wilde in Wilde Salome

Al Pacino has not really been seen since the stinker of a film that is RIGHTEOUS KILL but he has a lot coming up including this three in one production, WILDE  SALOME.

As Pacino explains at the beginning of the trailer as Pacino attempts to director and act in a play, documentary and film all at the same time. The film looks to examine the mind of playwrite, Oscar Wilde through his play; Salome, while also retracing the writer’s steps.

Here is the Wiki synopsis of the play;

The play tells in one act the Biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of thetetrarch Herod Antipas, who, to her stepfather’s dismay but to the delight of her mother Herodias, requests the head of Jokanaan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter as a reward for dancing the dance of the seven veils.

The film will premier at Venice Int’l Film Festival which began today. The film could be a complete hit or miss but I’m leaning towards miss since Pacino probably hasn’t done a decent flick since the 2002 remake of INSOMNIA. However its always fun to see Pacino wearing his headband.

Paul finished is BA in Film & Broadcast Productions during the summer and has somehow landed the position of Media & Marketing Manager in the London Korean Film Festival happening this November (plug). While at University Paul found his speciality lay in Script Development, scriptwriting and Editing. He has written, edited and director a small number of not very good short films but does not let that dissuade him from powering through. After the Koreans are through with him he looks to enter the paid world of Script Development. He likes incredibly bad horror films, East Asian movies, comics and lots of other stuff.

    Pacino was his old great self in HBO’s Angels in America and You Don’t Know Jack (2003, 2010 respectively) and he’s got the awards to prove it. He was Tony nominated in 2010 for his stage version of Merchant of Venice. MOV is last really good film (2004) I’d say.

    He’s done some great work since the dynamite Insomnia but it just hasn’t been in theatrical films unfortunately.

    I think Righteous Kill gets a bit of a bad rap too – it’s not very good but both he and DeNiro are appealing in it – they did what they could with it at least.
