Al Pacino Quotes:
  • "A major mistake was made in GODFATHER III, I think, which was they tried to redeem Michael Corleone. I don't think the audience wanted to see Michael Corleone as someone who is wanting or needing of redemption. It got a bit esoteric. It would have been better if it was done in a more subtle way."
  • "It's wonderful to be here. I love London so this is a real treat for me. "
  • The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful—my personal life suffers.”
