    I just watched his two most recent films

    Danny Collins and Manglehorn

    The movies were good, Danny Collins was better---but Pacino is still a great actor--and he has a fucking great head of hair

    The Danny Collins soundtrack is mostly all Lennon songs, extremely rare

    looks like some sort of keratin issue, not unusual in the elderly.

    Danny Collins was very good. Didn't even know about. Amazon was running a 2 tickets, 2 sodas, 2 popcorns for $15 special at the theater.
