Ocean’s Eleven (2001) Film Review
May 03, 2023 · 9 min

Another 4K retro review and a real eyeopener. Perhaps my idea of this film had been sullied by subsequent sequels but it is far less goofy or zany than I remembered, and far more thoughtful and, often beautiful. It also hews far closer to the original of these films, the classic Out of Sight. With as charismatic a cast as modern films get, an iconic soundtrack from David Holmes, a surprisingly brilliant script, and more style than is even fair, it rivals The Sting as the greatest heist movie ever made. It is also, on every level, one of the most perfectly made films put together this century.
