i came across this film yesterday when i was checking allocine.fr to see if there’s any interesting film released recently. the lookout is a new film written and directed by scott frank, academy award-nominated screenwriter for “out of sight” (he also wrote the screenplay for “get shorty”, “minority report”, and “interpreter”)

starring joseph gordon-levitt (10 things i hate about you, 3rd rock from the sun, mysterious skin, brick), jeff daniels, matthew goodethe, and isla fisher. lookout is an intelligent crime drama centered around chris, a once promising high school athlete whose life is turned upside down following a tragic accident. as he tries to maintain a normal life, he takes a job as a janitor at a bank where he ultimately finds himself caught up in a planned heist.

i quickly checked with movie release schedule 2007 in pantip.com, and found out that this film is not on the list. disappointed, hmm… hopefully it will be shown in lido multiplex or house, just like mysterious skin and brick.

i wouldn’t want to miss it. the lookout was released limitedly on march, 30 2007 in usa. and the dvd is scheduled to release soon on august 14, 2007. i prefer watching it in theatre though, 88% from rotten tomatoes can’t be wrong. plus i don’t think this film is a kind of movie that i can watch over and over again on dvd.
