GO!, Tonight, 9.30pm, M ( 2001)

An age­ing mas­ter thief ( Gene Hack­man, pic­tured) who dreams of re­tire­ment in South Amer­ica with his beau­ti­ful young wife ( Re­becca Pid­geon), is co­erced into that al­ways- iffy last big score by his de­mand­ing boss ( Danny DeVito), who in­sists his trig­ger­happy nephew ( Sam Rock­well) join the crew. Fea­tur­ing a metic­u­lously con­structed sym­phony of dou­ble- crosses, de­ceit and bravado, what could eas­ily have been a rou­tine crime flick is lifted to another level by a highly ta­lented en­sem­ble cast and the sharp- edged script of writer- di­rec­tor David Mamet.
