    Casablanca except better because it's actually Rio Bravo.

    The Bling Ring

    ★★★★

    The movie casts such a spell, it's tempting to overlook the care Coppola takes in locating the sadness that lies at the heart of the movie. Or maybe it's the sadness that casts the spell. There is a very deliberate coolness in the way she shows empathy to these characters without showing them any sympathy. 

    Fact: Coppola is one of our great artists.

    Like if Damien Chazelle had studied murder in college instead of jazz.
