The Lookout

Scott Frank


Published November 29, 2007.The LookoutDirected by: Scott FrankMiramaxBefore brain-damaged former hockey star Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) gets duped into abetting a bank robbery, The Lookout (Out of Sight scripter Scott Frank’s first go at directing) shows Chris living a quiet life with blind buddy Lewis (Jeff Daniels)---coming to terms with the difference between the golden god he used to be and the memory-impaired janitor he’s become. It’s this dynamic that elevates the film above your standard heist-o-rama (and makes it more than a Memento rip-off)Lindsay McCarneyCategories: Best of the year (2007)
