The Good Thief

Nick Nolte nails the role he was born to play as a jovial but burned-out gambler/drug addict slumming it up on the French Riviera. After rescuing a young Russian prostitute (the waif-stunning Nutsa Kukhianidze), he cleans up his act and prepares for the heist of a lifetime—ripping off a Monaco casino on the eve of the Grand Prix. This surprisingly entertaining remake of Jean-Pierre Melville's 1955 hallmark of neo-cool French film noir Bob Le Flambeur comes to us from director Neil Jordan (Mona Lisa, The Crying Game), who works a subtle magic, transforming the film from gritty crime saga to pure, escapist fantasy. 108 minutes
