The Best Thief in the World Reviews

June 20, 2011
There is alot missing here in this low budget Showtime movie. Its a simple case of all the parts not adding up to a coherent movie. Izzy is the oldest of three children all dealing with a father who has had a stroke and a mother played by the adorable, Mary Louise Parker, who is trying to keep her family together knowing they have no money. The film follows Izzy as he acts out as a way of dealing with life by breaking into apartments and not stealing, but just hanging out. Not a bad movie, just not a good one.

Well acted but very slow moving at times. The plot is interesting though. Realistic cinematography. I had a hard time warming up to the characters, and for a film of this nature, that is essential.
