My all-time favourite!
I love this movie! I LOVE IT!! The first time I saw it I was about eight, or
so, and I've probably seen it a hundred times since then and I still enjoy
it as much! Infact I still discover new things and details in scenes that I
haven't thought about before...
This movie has everything: Great script, great acting, style, fantastic
camerawork, excitement, Robert Redford & Paul Newman, HUMOUR, great
SOUNDTRACK, perfect lines - and above all - it presents the COOLEST ACTOR
I've EVER seen on screen!
No, no... Redford & Newman in all honour, but the coolest actor is without
competition ROBERT SHAW as Doyle Lonnegan. (Or was it Linneman?
I've never seen a performance like that one by Robert Shaw... Probably the
greatest supporting role performance ever made. So complete! So genius! So
elegant! AND SO COOL!!
This movie is just - wow! - one of the kind. Don't miss it for the world.
And I'll never forgive you if you miss Robert Shaw.
I'll con you if you do. ;)
My vote: 10/10
