The Old Man and A Gun

Yes it is a pleasure to see Redford dig into a role cut for him. What a joy to see the return of Sissy Spacek playing something other than a throw away part. This slight film moves at turtle pace with rare pay-offs. The charming bank robber can only go so far to compel us for 90 minutes. The vintage grainy seventies look didn’t work for me. Casey Affleck failed to engage as the police detective hunting Redford. An adult film without much soul.
