The Intelligence of Artby Thomas Crow
Pierce Brosnan stars as bored millionaire playboy Thomas Crown who loves to steal for the sake of the game until he locks horns with luscious insurance investigator Rene Russo.
As for Brosnan, he can never quite climb out of the shadow of the original portrayal of Thomas Crown which was subtle, laid back and was perfectly laid out for the brilliance of Steve McQueen. Another thing I remember from the original was the very dramatic 1960’s score.
