Flawless is a clever heist film
In the 2007 movie “Flawless,” a night janitor has an improbable plan to rob his employer. The employer is the headquarters of a diamond cartel.
To help him, he recruits a woman executive who is pissed at the company.
The challenge is overwhelming and the twists and turns here are clever and will keep a viewer guessing.
The always terrific Michael Caine as the janitor and Demi Moore as the executive propel this unusual heist picture.
The film was directed by Michael Radford and written by Edward Anderson (who I am pretty sure is not the Edward Anderson who wrote the 1937 crime novel Thieves Like Us.)
“Flawless” is available on the streaming site Kanopy.
