Inside ‘Serpico’ — excellent interviews are tightly edited to make this worthwhile, despite being only 12 minutes long. Sidney Lumet chats with what looks like a twinkle in his eye about shocking Al Pacino with his style of direction. Pacino had just finished a long and perhaps indulgent shoot with ‘The Godfather,’ where multiple takes were the norm. Lumet’s pace was radically faster, shooting only one take for each scene shot on the first day, which rattled Pacino. The result though was that it energised Pacino’s performance and he fed off that for inspiration. Editor Dede Allen was forced to edit each day’s celluloid on the fly, which makes the movie’s cohesion and pacing all the more incredible.
