Pick of the Day: The Art of the Steal
Directed by Jonathan Sobol
Showtimes: Today at 12:00 p.m.

Crunch Calhoun is both a motorcycle daredevil and a thief.  The man known more for his crash landings than for his high jump finds himself behind bars after he is double crossed by his brother and partner in crime, Nicky. When Calhoun is finally released he feels he has one last scheme under his sleeve, but finds he has to join forced with his brother to execute it. The main question is, how long until their alliance wears thin again? When will the truce end?

Why we chose The Art of the Steal: For one, the film stars seasoned actors like Kurt Russel and Matt Dillon. The film seems action packed with the perfect amount of sibling rivalry, and poses some good chances of having epic car chase scenes. The tensions of if, when, and how the brothers will finally turn against one another is killer, so it seems like now you just have to watch the film. If you don’t you just will never know what happens, and that is just the worst isn’t it?
