Opening in select theaters.
Mick Jagger and Donald Sutherland in an art-heist film? Yes, please!
Here's the good news, Donald Sutherland plays one of his best characters ever in this film, Mick Jagger is fantastic in his role as a polite art collector with no scruples, and the story has several compelling twists and turns that keep it interesting.
The bad news is that it takes a good 30 minutes to get anywhere of substance. And the ending, while exciting, feels really rushed and incomplete.
Everything in between is great. It's intriguing and suspenseful, and the drama unfolds in ways that give the story and characters several more layers.
No, this isn't going to be one of the great art-heist films, but it is one that is worth streaming once.
