Neil Jordan’s remake of the French crime thriller Bob le Flambeur is well worth a look. The story centres on a heroin-addicted gambler – some guys just have all the luck – as he hatches an ambitious plan to steal a casino’s priceless art collection.
He must however come up with a cunning strategy to outwit his tenacious arch-enemy. Stars Nick Nolte, Tcheky Karyo and Ralph Fiennes.
