Nick Spaine’s review published on Letterboxd:
“How'd you do it, Frank? How'd you pass the bar in Louisiana?“
Catch Me If You Can has been on my watchlist for the longest time, seeing a couple clips on social media in the past weeks pushed me over the edge. This is one of those biopics that the story is so crazy that it seems fictional. I loved the mirroring storylines of Tom Hanks and Leo DiCaprio and the unconventional relationship they build over the course of the film. And what a great cast this had too, more and more great faces showed up as the film unfolded. My favorite aspect of this film was the cons that Frank was able to pull off and how the FBI always seemed to be one step behind but getting closer. There were just so many different cons that over the course of the 2.5 hour runtime it stays fresh and fun. Frank by the end was just someone I could root for and it was super cool how he finished his arch.
Overall Rating: A-
