Atlantic City

Posted by martinteller on July 3, 2009

A crime thriller/romantic drama, a little lackluster but redeemed by its heartfelt, bittersweet ending.  Burt Lancaster is terrific as the delusional, wannabe big-shot… Susan Sarandon is merely passable, but she’s saddled with an inconsistent, poorly defined character.  It’s rather amusing that Wallace Shawn plays a waiter here, and a diner in Malle’s next film (My Dinner With Andre).  Rating: 7
