"Duffy...that old Tangerine hipster!"
28 May 2008 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Retired master criminal in Tangiers is recruited by a hedonistic British youth and his working-stiff brother to rip off a business tycoon of nearly three million dollars; complicating matters is the kid's kittenish girlfriend, who seems to change loyalties easily. Mod, swinging caper-comedy curiously doesn't spend a lot of time on plot-exposition (the planning of the actual heist is kept mostly off-screen), yet it does putter about lazily while introducing us to these people (who end many of their sentences with "man" and "baby"). James Coburn's decadent pad is really peculiar ("pop-porno", he calls it), and yet it has almost nothing to do with what's going on or even with Duffy's character (he does possess, however, the only fish tank-cum-slot machine I've ever seen!). Once the pieces of this location-rich adventure come into play, the picture becomes a passable piece of fluff (with a twist ending that is rather far-fetched, leaving a few questions unanswered). Still, Coburn is an intriguing presence, Susannah York is flighty and flirtatious (and beautiful with a tan), and James Mason is typically suave--and silently cunning--as their victim. ** from ****
