Oliver Twist

Roman Polanski (Chinatown) takes a crack at Charles Dickens' classic tale of resourceful orphan boys and opportunistic thieves. Polanski remains faithful to the original novel, but ads little flavor to it, cramming as many characters and incidents as he can into the film's 130-minute run time. The result is occasionally impressive (the visuals are spot-on, Sir Ben Kingsley does a mean Fagin), but a bit too formal. 130 minutes PG-13.
