Al Pacino's movie magic

Below is a pretty inane Katie Couric interview with Al Pacino (if you don't see a video, click the headline above to visit my blog). However, there are some things he says that I like, such as:

"What I did with Jack Kevorkian is I worked. I went into my little bunker by the house. A lot of acting is private time," he explained.

It seems that people who are attracted to acting have a hard time accepting this. They see the finished product, and assume that that is what the whole thing must be like. But it isn't. Actors need to invest. And to do that, we need to be alone.

It's that simple.

Absolutely inspiring! I felt the rage and cried, and I feel how insanely much I like Al Pacino! I am still crying. This man...his words, his presence, his complicated simplicity are so powerful! Andrew, the words you told me about my fear of overdoing [acting] are still resonating in my ears: "it's never too much". Acting Rage. Thank you, Andrew.
