Entrapment

914KBExWJlL. SL1500  211x300 Entrapment

Following the theft of a valuable piece of artwork, Gin Baker, an insurance agent, convinces her employers to allow her to befriend an aging master thief, in order to better protect their clients.

Such a fantastic movie with obvious salacious elements, but it came out at a formative time in my life (13!) and at the height of Catherine Zeta Jones’ career, in my mind at least. This was also one of the last films that Sean Connery was in, and one of the first films that I remember with Ving Rhames. There’s some previous obvious and hilarious filters being used when CZJ is on the screen and it’s jarring to see during her bath and forth with Connery in a couple scenes, almost like taking your glasses off and on for each cut.

There’s a list of things that really date the film, from the way they’re stealing money during the Y2k transition, to where there doing it at the “world’s tallest building”, to the CRT monitors that show up all over the place. To wrap it all up, it ended with a song by Seal.

I enjoyed it though, even with all the rough edges.
