It seems like sacrilege, but apparently Neil Jordan's remake of Bob Le Flambeur, The Good Thief is actually good. Elvis Mitchell says, "The movie feels more like a breezy, jazz-inflected version of the original: it's a triumph of flourish, all weathered, movie-star-size gestures." Nick Nolte stars, as well as Ralph Fiennes, but I'm actually interested in director Emir Kusturica's performance.
