“The Devil’s Advocate” was released 25 years ago

Satan's greatest success is that people have stopped believing in him. For some, it blended in with the crowd, and for others it simply disappeared, became invisible, which makes it seem completely harmless. It's not true!


Satan is becoming more and more dangerous because people do not see or do not want to see how huge a threat he carries, which is very well illustrated in the book and film “The Devil’s Advocate. 

In this masterpiece, Keanu Reeves plays the role of a brilliant advocate gradually tempted by the Devil (Al Pacino).  The latter takes the guise of a human lawyer named after the author of Paradise Lost, John Milton.

The story and direction contain allusions to Milton’s epic, Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, and the legend of Faust. An adaptation of Neiderman’s novel went into a development hell during the 1990s, with Hackford gaining control of the production. Filming took place around New York City and Florida.
