175: SFFCH – Serpico [1973]

175 Serpico

Abi was watching wrestling (of course) and thought of Al Pacino (obviously!), so this week the Spoiler Filled Crew are watching Serpico, a gritty slice of 70’s cinematic americana based on the life of cop, whistleblower and all-round cool dude Frank Serpico. This time around Abi herself is pressured into whistleblowing, Rich dreams of slapstick crossovers, Jamie keeps reminding us that everybody is dead and everyone marvels at the many, many beards of Al Pacino.
