The Old Man & The Gun – Great acting but oh so slow…

I am pretty sure that you are aware going in that you will be watching a slow moving drama instead of some fast action shoot them up bank heist movie. But it is an understatement to categorize this movie as slow. I mean it is SLOW! However, Robert Redford’s acting is a masterclass of restrain. He act with his face expression and you can see all the subtle nuance of his face and you already know what he was feeling inside in that particular scene. That’s a master at work! His chemistry with Sissy Spacek make this movie work and you feel the heartbreak she was going through loving someone who’s like an untamed horse despite his old age. Sissy did a great job in this movie as well. But did I already mentioned that this movie is slow? Oh boy, did it ever!
