The Untouchables

Well worth the revisit.

A couple of impressions. This is Sean Connery's world and we just live in it. Holy Shit does that guy know how to be charming and deliver some pithy lines. And when it's Mamet writing those lines, all the better. It's great to just see his performance (for which he won the Academy Award).

DePalma is at his long tracking shot best. He just loves those big crane shots and hott steadycam action. Cool beans.

The movie did feel like it had a few false endings. Eh, whatev. The stolen Odessa Steps sequence is fun -- having a gun fight in slow motion while a baby carriage falls down a staircase is always good cinema.
