Although conflict is less central to Out Of Sight than in the Ocean’s trilogy, it similarly comes down to treachery versus trickery, with antagonists who represent the antithesis of the movie’s artistry: They are overarmed, greedy, fractious, and don’t know how to take their time. What makes its unlikely love story work is that, like Out Of Sight itself, it’s ultimately about pleasure.

The best film version of a Leonard novel… Psychological time, stop-time, stolen moments as if in plain sight. A movie can do things that words cannot express.

I didn’t believe anything that happened in Out of Sight for a millisecond, but it became clear early on that I wasn’t supposed to. Based on an Elmore Leonard novel I haven’t read and chock-full of familiar faces—including a couple who aren’t credited—the film lives exclusively on generic expectations, not on notions about life or personality that exist independent of other movies.
