Flawless, Michael Radford (2007)

A good example of why you should ignore marketing. This was sold as a caper flick in which an executive (Demi Moore) and a janitor (Michael Caine) at a diamond firm pull off a big heist. In fact, Radford, who has perhaps the oddest list of credits you’ll ever see, is only interested in the robbery insofar as it secured the financing for the film; this is really a movie about gender (Moore) and class (Caine) discrimination in 1960’s London. It’s not a great movie, but it’s a good one, and an entirely different one than I thought it was going to be.
