One of the first major Hollywood movies of the modern era to shoot exclusively in Baltimore, Maryland. Most of the picture was shot on location there but some sets were built for filming on sound stages in the studio in Los Angeles. See more »

And Justice for All is an expose of the corruption, politics, and general crookedness of the legal profession. We are introduced to this unsavory world in the form of Al Pacino's character, Arthur. The movie does a good job of portraying both the human and systemic flaws of the American legal system. While the film works well if it is viewed as a segment of episodes, it suffers if viewed as a whole. Taken together the episodes feel disjointed. Still, And Justice for All is a socially relevant film and the presence of Pacino adds to its appeal. 7/10.
