The Good Thief

TIFF 2002: ‘The Good Thief’ Film Review

Let me be honest, I’ve never really liked Nick Nolte before. He’s a consummate actor, but there’s always just been something about his characters and performances that didn’t quite sit right with me. That’s why I have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I loved him as Bob Montagnet in The Good Thief. That’s to say nothing of how much I liked the film itself and the wonderful cast that made it as good as it was.

Planning my strategy for TIFF

To start off my festival experience, I went to see Nick Nolte in The Good Thief–a film that easily swept me off my feet and totally surprised me. I am so surprised by how much I loved this film. I’m working on the review still, but I hope to have it up tomorrow morning before I run out to the first films of the morning. Unfortunately, I got some bad news tonight.
