Description : Eli Wurman (Academy Award winner AL PACINO) is coming apart at the seams. A legendary New York PR man whose glory days are far behind him, Wurman is lost in the blur of media, celebrity and politics.

But when a seemingly routine incident, involving a temperamental starlet (TEA LEONI) and a world-famous movie star (RYAN O'NEAL), leads him into the murky world of political conspiracy and murder, Eli ignores his deteriorating health and pours his manic energies into pleading, seducing, cajoling and recruiting Manhattan's movers and shakers to come out and support his cause. In the end, Eli discovers one undeniable truth: it's not who you are that matters, it's who you know.

Review from ]IMDB

"Don't pay that much attention about all the bad comments you will hear: this is a very interesting movie.

To sum up, Al Pacino is an agent for all kind of people: stars, politicians... Therefore, he knows a lot of people and way too much about them. Now, the problem is that to many spectators the movie seemed empty. True there is no action, and true there is no big storyline. But it doesn't matter! This movie is about describing the "high spheres" of New York society. It is a good lesson on how corrupted the system is, how hypocrite people can be, and how you can't rely on anybody, even so-called friends. Everyone will turn his back on you when it comes to his own interest.

Al Pacino acts great in this movie. It's a very hard part since there is no real guideline, but he does the job wonderfully. You will see an OLD Al Pacino, a TIRED Al Pacino, that might disappoints you if you remember him as the lively and shouting "mister Devil's Advocate", but it's an interesting side of him that you might discover."
