Diamond Demi

See a heist flick at the Modern

If there's one thing we love it's a good heist movie, whether it's Ocean's Eleven, The Thomas Crown Affair, Inside Man, Kelly's Heroes, A Fish Called Wanda, Home Alone or uh, Home Alone 2. (OK, so maybe we're stretching with Home Alone 2, but come on, it's awesome. We still put a Talkboy on our Christmas list every year, after all.) A general rule of thumb for the genre is that every film must feature at least one crafty old thief, preferably a gentlemanly Englishman. In the case of the recently released Flawless, that crafty Englishman is Michael Caine, whom some of you might recognize for his fine work playing Hoagie Newcombe in Jaws: The Revenge. Set in London circa 1960, Flawless features Caine as an aging janitor who plans a brilliant heist of the London Diamond Corporation with a disgruntled female employee played by Demi Moore, who some of you might know as one of only 10 or 15 women who've banged both Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher. Catch it at 6 and 8 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St. Visit the modern.org.
