  • [New – 3/19/15] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
    • Excerpt: Fedele alle sue origini teatrali, non stentiamo a credere che Pacino voglia vivere sullo schermo e sulla scena, anche gli utlimmi bagliori del suo crepuscolo umano ed artistico.
  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: Which is not to say that’s a great movie; for many long stretches, it’s not even a particularly good one. But in the end, ‘The Humbling’ is one of those movies where the “plot” is far less interesting than what the movie is “about” — and in this case, it’s about acting in general and Al Pacino in particular.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: Al Pacino stars in Barry Levinson’s ‘The Humbling,’ a film about an aging stage actor who’s lost his mojo and is simultaneously losing touch with reality. A plot that sounds familiar, but not quite.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: I’m sure Barry Levinson had no idea Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu was making the all-too-similar “Birdman.” While Michael Keaton’s performance will be remembered, Al Pacino’s probably will not.

    • Excerpt: Now that “Birdman” has collected awards and Oscar nominations, it’s sour grapes to suggest that an injustice has been done to “The Humbling.” Nonetheless, it [“The Humbling”] is a better movie.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: An uneven, hit-and-miss affair, but it represents a comeback for Pacino and, to some extent, for Levinson.
