The Old Man & The Gun

The Old Man and The Gun

Robert Redford's (allegedly) final film is this extremely low-key crime flick about a seventysomething dude who breaks out of prison and goes on a bank robbery spree. Based (loosely) on a true story, it sounds sprightly and exciting. But writer-director David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints, A Ghost Story) wants to keep this as minimalist a cinematic exercise as possible. The film trades well on Redford's charisma, and he gets some nice scenes with romantic interest Sissy Spacek.At the end of the day, though, the film is much more about quiet conversations in small diners than gunfights and car chases. FULL REVIEW: Real life bank heist flick gets a senior discount by Devin D. O’Leary (10/11/2018). 93 minutes PG-13.
