“It’s really hard,” John Hughes said during a recent interview. “If I could stay in this location, I wouldn’t be done.”

Movie review: The Old Man & the Gun

Movie Review.jpg

The Old Man & The Gun— Running Time: 1:33 — Rating: PG-13

“The Old Man & The Gun” is quiet, slow and questionable. The main reason to go is to salute Robert Redford by seeing his final film. Now, however, Redford has announced in a recent interview that he had such fun making this one that he may well change his mind about retiring. Whether you decide to go should depend on how you feel about this movie actor who has given us great pleasure over the decades. Without him, this movie wouldn’t last long.
