The American

George Clooney is the poster child for this classy cool Euro thriller about a professional assassin hiding out in Italy while preparing for one last job. The situation isn't exactly a fresh one, but the cast is solid and the scenery is gorgeous. (That applies to the Italian countryside as well as costar Violante Placido.) Just don't go expecting a whole lot of action. With its slim dialogue and stripped-bare story, the whole thing plays out like some long-lost example of existentialist '70s cinema. Me, I have a soft spot for that kinda stuff. You, maybe not so much. In English and Italian with English subtitles. 105 minutes R.
