Part of the program

After appearing in the 1969 comedy drama, Me Natalie, Pacino broke out in this unflinching verité look at a group of Upper West Side junkies and petty criminals. Written by Joan Didion and John Gregory Dunne, Panic follows the doomed love story of junkie-hustler Pacino and waif turned hooker Kitty Winn, as they unsuccessfully evade the narcs.
