The Lookout (2007)

Zodiac is the best movie I’ve seen this year, but The Lookout is my favorite.

Thank God for neo-noir: In the past few years, Out of Time, The Ice Harvest and now The Lookout are the only pure examples I can point to that suggest someone still thinks there are grown-up Americans still going to the cinema in search of entertainment.

All three are flawed, but they get so many things right, and provide so much pleasure, that you’ll never read about their flaws here.
