The Old Man and the Gun
A marvellous film, made out of three great movie genres. It's a cops-and-robbers film with an over-70s Rom Com on the side and it's got a dash of a Western. Ideal. The dialogue is spare, the car chases are excellent and it's witty. Sometimes it focusses on odd little details that don't need to go anywhere. My kind of film. It's set in the 1980s and reminds me of the Fargo series on Netflix. The story is somewhat true and once you have watched the film reading about the character it is based on is another joy.
The blurb says this: 'The Old Man and the Gun tells the mostly true story of bank robber Forest Tucker, who escaped prison at age 70, yet refused to retire from his chosen profession.'
It was Robert Redford's final movie, so he says.
