THE SCORE/ 2001
Directed by Frank Oz
Cast: Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, Edward Horton
Extremely well acted, breathtaking, suspense caper drama. Amazing display of great acting when these three are together. Di Niro is the master safecracker, Brando, in perhaps one of his last roles, is the wily fence (very funny), and Norton is the young thief. Setting is Montreal. Unpredictable.
