Ocean's Eleven ★★★★★

Hosted a screening of this tonight as a movie that I believe everybody should watch. I think it’s truly a near-perfect film. Terrific at show-don’t-tell, extremely well-written, laced with brilliant bon mots, cool without being smug, stylish and beautifully directed, and maybe the apex of what I consider to be the last age of The Movie Star. can’t think of anyone whose cultural cache right now reaches the level of fame that Clooney, Pitt, or Roberts had in this era, and having them all in one movie? Get outta town. This movie is a magic trick.
