They’re less than stellar students, these four college guys
Who have an audacious plan (yes, it’s clearly unwise).
Of crazy situations
Where twelve mil of rare books are the prize.
So the Ocean family traits are ingrained and lasting.
An elaborate scheme. Complex skills. In they go blasting.
It’s an enormously fun ride
Watching these cool women slide
Into a great adventure. Excellent (lead and ensemble) casting.
Vile, damaged March (full of poison, and new to town)
Brings on an event that’ll require the rep of the Crown.
From Thornton: extraordinary storytelling
Visually commanding, and so compelling.
Doolans: brilliant work (as a boy used to being pushed down).
Missing his scheduled rest break fills Poirot with dread.
But he's needed (because: Oops! Someone's dead!)
To nominate the accused.
Strong cast, but under-used.
Highlight: some interesting camera angles (overhead).
Terrific chemistry between Isaac and Chastain
As a couple navigating drama and pain
In an industry that's so aggressive.
Again, Chandor's direction is impressive:
Trademark high stakes - so much to lose or gain.
