I used to love this movie. First when I saw it at the theater when I was still in high school, then in repeated viewings -- Blockbuster rental, cable and now, finally, DVR. I recalled it as suspenseful and fast moving, with a little romance thrown in.
This weekend, I thought superficial and not especially engaging.
How can that be? I adore circa 1970s Robert Redford! Sydney Pollack is one of my favorite directors! I always thought they did their best work together. And yet this weekend, I was all "eh."
And interestingly, Faye Dunaway -- an actress I usually dismiss as pretentious* -- struck me as warm and funny.
*Except as Bonnie. I loved her in Bonnie and Clyde.
