Classic Video: “I’ll Show you Out of Order” – Scent of a Woman

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

Marked as the final scene of the entertaining film “Scent of a Woman”. A remarkable speech by Pacino who delivers amazing lines like “I’ll take a flamethrower to this place.” and “This is such a crock of shit.” He’s a blind man so he simply sits in his chair for 5 minutes and chats with the full assembly of private school boys and the faculty. And he’s got them in the palm of his hand as the cliche goes. Some interesting reaction shots by the boy he’s protecting, Charlie (Chris O’Donnell), and the boy, George Willis Jr., he needs to take down to protect Charlie (a very young Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays this role.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
