Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/22/2007
"PANIC is a welcome reminder of what a subtle actor Pacino was..." -- Grade: A-
USA Today - 06/22/2007
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a dynamic Al Pacino in his first major screen role."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2011
"It's a beautifully photographed film....Appropriately, Schatzberg's harrowing but crucial film offers its characters no fairytale redemption.."
Uncut - 10/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "A pre-GODFATHER Al Pacino delivers a compellingly raw early performance..."

Product Description:

In 1970s New York, Bobby (Al Pacino in his first major film role) and Helen (Kitty Winn) are young and in love--and addicted to heroin. Shot in a loose documentary style, and acted with improvisational rawness, the film shows the young couple's increasingly desperate habit go from bad to worse. Written by Joan Didion, the film portrays characters trapped in a bleak urban lifestyle as they strive to maintain their love for each other.
