OUT OF SIGHT
1998, Universal, 123 min, USA, Dir: Steven Soderbergh

Meet Jack Foley (George Clooney), a smooth criminal who bends the law and is determined to make one last heist. Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez) is a Federal Marshal who chooses all the right moves ... and all the wrong guys. Now they're willing to risk it all to find out if there's more between them than just the law. With Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Albert Brooks and Catherine Keener. Edited by Anne V. Coates. "OUT OF SIGHT, a sly, sexy, vastly entertaining film version of Elmore Leonard’s playful crime novel, represents director Steven Soderbergh’s most ambitious and most accomplished work to date. Brimming with a dozen offbeat characters, this reflexively witty crime caper boasts the sort of bright, snappy dialogue that’s rarely heard in a mainstream picture." - Emanuel Levy, Variety.
