Entrapment, a high-gloss throwback to those globe-trotting caper flicks of the ’60s and ’70s, stars a still-dashing Connery as an aging superthief enlisted by sly insurance investigator Zeta-Jones to join in on a couple of big scores. With its terrific Hitchcockian climax set high on the bridge connecting the world’s tallest office towers, this is one sexy and satisfyingly twisty dance.

Reel Goodies The first of two extraordinary appearances by Maury Chaykin as a glassy-eyed, diapered underworld Buddha — the most indelible portrait of decadent madness since Alfred Molina freaked in ”Boogie Nights.” The Last Detail Original director Antoine Fuqua (”The Replacement Killers”) bailed — and was replaced by Jon Amiel (”Copycat”) — because he was unhappy with the emphasis on romance.
