A superior political conspiracy thriller scripted by William Goldman about a master jewel thief who witnesses a murder by Secret Service agents.
Clint Eastwood directs, produced and also stars, heading a top ensemble cast including Gene Hackman, Laura Linney, Ed Harris, Scott Glenn, Judy Davis, Dennis Haysbert and E.G. Marshall in his last screen role.
The plot bubbles along nicely with the odd absurdity along the way but this is an intelligent piece of film making, intriguing and gripping, and the sort of movie they don't seem to make nowadays. More's the pity.
