Legends Podcast is cracking open the cinematic vault and bringing you a whole month of cons, capers, and car chases! Whether you’re an East End card sharp, a handsome art thief, a trio of rogue soldiers, or eight feisty heisting heroines, you’ll find the big score right here on our podcast. This is Aug-Heist!
This week we’re talking about The Thomas Crown Affair, also one of our Legends of ‘99, a remake of the 1968 Steve McQueen-Faye Dunaway caper. Action director John McTeirnan pairs Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo in the lead roles, for a sexy update to the classic cat-and-mouse game between a wealthy art thief and a determined insurance investigator. The film employs – and also subverts – several heist movie tropes, but is the end result a new masterpiece or a cheap forgery of the original?
Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! These discussions will be spoiler filled and may explicit language, so consider yourself warned.
