An addicted ex-con (Nick Nolte) kicks his habit in order to mastermind an elaborate heist involving the Monte Carlo casino, complicated by a flaky teen sidekick (Nutsa Kukhianidze) and a suspicious detective (Tcheky Karyo) dogging his every move. Writer-director Neil Jordan's heist caper has a clever set-up and quirky cop-crook dynamics but eventually bogs down in complex plotting and a morally ambiguous resolution. Some violence, an implied affair and sexual references, fleeting nudity, brief drug abuse and much rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
