ELEVEN, Fri­day, 8.30pm, M ( 1992)

Age­ing like a fine wine, Al Pa­cino ( pic­tured with Gabrielle An­war) pours his heart into a po­tent por­trayal of a blind army colonel at odds with the world and his past. The al­co­holic, ir­ri­ta­ble colonel is given a “min­der” over the Thanks­giv­ing holiday – wide- eyed student Char­lie ( Chris O’Don­nell), who has prob­lems of his own. Pa­cino racked up his first Os­car for this, but per­haps it was a sen­ti­men­tal vote more than any­thing – he killed ’ em in Car­l­ito’s Way and in Dog Day Af­ter­noon 20 years ear­lier.
