Pacino turns in an endearing understated performance in this tender hearted film about reconnection. The small events in this man's life slowly unfold, giving a gradual insight to his past, present, and future relationships. By opening up to those around him he's able to break out of his personal enclosed space that he's locked himself inside of for so long. There's a smart metaphor with his lock and key profession that pays off in the final scene (one of my favorites all year). Some may find plotting a bit meandering in a couple places, and the pacing slow, but it satisfies if you stick with it.

Pacino is a brilliant actor with a palmares that stands out from anyone else. No one questions that. His unique characteristic face has been displayed on many movie posters of well-known films. From Michael Corleone and Tony Montana, to Willy Bank. Each time he played an imposing person with charismatic traits. Luckily David Gordon Green could get him for the lead role in "Manglehorn". It surely isn't an epic mafia story or crime with a corrupt police force. It's rather a melancholy character study in which Pacino pulls out all the stops and once again demonstrates what a class actor he really is. But that's the only conclusion we can …
