Film description

Jerry Schatzberg has a tremendous gift for directing actors, a fact evident in Scarecrow. Gene Hackman and Al Pacino base their outstanding roles on heavy doses of improvisation because Schatzberg was interested in building complex credible characters rather than showing off a multiplicity of acting fireworks. Scarecrow, winner of the Golden Palm at Cannes, is part of film lore as an excellent buddy movie that juxtaposes two different philosophies – the rational, where conflict is resolved through violence, and the irrational, where laughter is medicine for aggression. Cinematography by the legendary Vilmos Zsigmond enriches the film with picturesque landscapes.
