@LolCait Also, I think Will Patton is accurately rated!

@LolCait I love when Catherine says, "This is called entrapment!" She's defining entrapment to Sean Connery, but she's also saying the name of the movie! Clever line. Clever screenplay!

It's a great heist film. I've seen it more than a few times!

Today I worked from home and turned off Twitter and cable news and watched "Entrapment" for free on HDNet On Demand.

On 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Is My Favorite Movie Of 2012

@sunnyciegos Sure, India is "still emerging from a terrible legacy of colonialism," but I'd argue that the movie is about characters attempting to distance themselves from their past and change the trajectory of their future. As for "sweetly reifying" colonialism, the character who expects the India of her childhood ("One has read one's Kipling," she says gleefully) finds herself shocked and appalled by postcolonial India. She is ridiculed. She moves back to England. People like her exist, but the movie absolutely does not paint them in a good light. I wrote "Even Dev Patel" as a way of pointing out that a lesser movie would have simplified the Indian characters, not taken the time to give them identities. Dev is attempting to start his own business, his girlfriend is a University graduate employed at a call center, and they're both attempting to gain the respect of Dev's mother, a wealthy matriarch who is struggling to deal with a new India that has been in an almost constant state of flux since her youth. I didn't expect any of that after seeing the movie's promotional materials.

@jolie Why are you acting like you didn't promise me all your brownies?

On Crack Brownies

Jolie's brownies are the real deal. A few months ago I took a batch into the backseat of a red Renault and steamed up the windows.
