      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Manglehorn boasts a nicely understated performance from Al Pacino, but that isn't enough to compensate for a slight story and uneven script.

      Shioka O I think this is watchable because Pacino really is a magnetic actor. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/26/22 Full Review Audience Member It is true that there is not much story, but the movie is so delicate, the character of Pacino wakes so many things inside us, that I can forgive it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Great moments but felt long at times. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/19/18 Full Review Audience Member Al Pacino gives a very nice and subtle performance in Manglehorn. The film itself is an acquired taste for sure, as is with most of David Gordon Green's films. The story is not very intriguing or deep. More or less this film works more as a light character study that focuses on a man who has spent most of his life in regretful pain over the loss of the woman he truly loved. Pacino is a master at revealing deep sorrow and pain through the eyes of this character. Overall, for me the film is worth watching for Pacino's performance. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Al Pacino's 'Cast Away' Moment As He Is The Lead In A Film Where The Majority Of Time Is Spent In His Own Thoughts, Talking To Himself Or A Cat. Without Him Cast In This Lead Role It Most Probably Would Of Become A Failed Project. Many Of The Small Roles That Do Engage With Him Are Not Well Developed, It Is Confusing At Times & The Moods-Themes Chops & Changes So Much It Becomes A Rabble Of Ideas. Some Of It Is Tragic, Some Bits Hit A Good Mark, Whilst Other Bits Are Just Stupid. I Still Found It All Okayish But Mostly Because The Music Added Some Unusual Tones. I Would Not Recommend This As A 'Comedy' Tho As Some Have...It Doesn't Even Manage Dark Comedy. It Is More Of A Tragic Requiem. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member 3.5 stars. Al Pacino gives an empathetic, well acted performance. This is a quirky indie movie. I enjoyed this movie and think it is seriously underrated here.

      Tara Brady Irish Times Even set against this chequered history, Manglehorn is an extremely odd picture. Rated: 3/5 Mar 7, 2016 Full Review Jonathan Romney Observer (UK) It drifts at its own sweet pace, but eccentric, impressionistic editing muddies the water. Rated: 3/5 Aug 9, 2015 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Its pleasures are low-key, for sure, but Green just packs the screen with interesting things. Rated: 3/5 Aug 7, 2015 Full Review Jordan Brooks Vague Visages Seldom more than a vehicle for Pacino to exercise his considerable (and still active) talents, Manglehorn is a string of engaging and breathtaking images that, when strung together, become a subdued meandering plot devoid of any real meaning. Aug 2, 2023 Full Review David Walsh World Socialist Web Site The problem does not lie with Pacino as such, but with an "open-ended" script that does not have sufficient pointedness or purpose to it. Feb 12, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Featuring an understated and highly enjoyable performance from Al Pacino, it may feel slight, but Green is never trying to exaggerate a tale that's about the difficulty of moving beyond regret. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 20, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
