ART OF THE STEAL
ART OF THE STEAL

In this 2013 Canadian film starring Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, Kurt Russell (in his first feature film role in seven years), Matt Dillon and Terence Stamp, a third-rate motorcycle daredevil and part-time art thief teams up with this snaky brother to steal one of the most valuable books in the world.  Of note is Russell’s performance as Crunch Calhoun, a motorcycle daredevil better known for crashing landings than for death-defying leaps.  The film debuted as a “gala presentation” at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.  Reviewers have hailed Jonathan Sobol’s script and direction, referring to his “flair for crackling dialogue, kinetic set pieces, and compelling fraternal dynamics.”
