“1997 movie, Devil’s Advocate. After young ambitious attorney Keanu Reeves learns his boss in an endlessly corrupt NY law firm, Al Pacino, is a) his father, and b) Satan, Keanu, a bit PUT OFF, asks dad why he’s in the law business, why he’s chosen that vehicle; and Pacino says:

“Because, the law, my boy, puts us into everything. It’s the ultimate backstage pass. It’s the new priesthood, baby. Did you know there are more students in law school than lawyers walking the Earth? We’re coming out…guns blazing!
