After the success of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid I put a hold on The Sting at the library. While not a must-own for me, I enjoyed it. It’s a solid & stylish caper flick, and everything that the Ocean’s movies will never be.
It won the Best Picture Oscar in 1974, which intrigued me, so I went to have a look at the other nominees. The only other two I’ve seen are American Graffiti and The Exorcist. I have hugehuge love for American Graffiti, but since when has the Academy gone with my favorite, right? Right.
(A side note: I was so annoyed! The library DVD was full screen! Why would anyone want it in full screen? Grr.)
