And Justice for All is the 1979 famed Al Pacino courtroom drama directed by Norman Jewison, and now available on Crackle.com. The film also features the famous actor/teacher Lee Strasberg (whom Pacino studied with and starred along side of in "The Godfather Part II"). It features the famous scene in which Pacino's character, morally conflicted attorney Arthur Kirkland, grabs the judges gavel and screams "You're out of order! You're out of order! The whole trial is out of order!". Kirkland is an idealistic lawyer who believes the law should serve and protect the people above all. He lands a rape case that shakes him to the bone. Kirkland's defendant is a wicked judge who discloses his guilt to him. Kirkland must decide whether to continue defending his client as the law dictates everyone is entitled to a defense, or go against his duty and turn the crooked judge in. The film received 2 academy award nominations - one for Pacino's performance in a leading role, and one for the original screenplay.moreless
