The Thomas Crown Affair

  • Film

Slick, silly romantic thriller, with Dunaway as an insurance investigator falling for McQueen, the property developer led to commit a bank robbery through boredom. Much obvious 'significance' (the pair playing chess; symbolic, see?), much glossy imagery (courtesy of Haskell Wexler) fashionably fragmented into interminable split-screen nonsense, and little of any real interest. The whole thing is as irritatingly meaningless as its Oscar-winning song, 'Windmills of My Mind'; a sad product of its times.

This "Time Out" capsule review is nasty, misleading and inaccurate. The original "Thomas Crown" excels based on the style and charisma of its stars. Also- the soundtrack, which is still a classic.

Come on! This movie is a star vehicle and an entertainment of the best Hollywood sort. It captures stars at the height of their allure. A bit of fluff perhaps, but Dunaway is gorgeous to look at and McQueen's performance is curiously enigmatic.
