Despite being a remake, I thought Pierce Brosnan's adaptation of The Thomas Crown Affair was actually better than Steve McQueen's! The addition of Rene Russo made it even better, although I was a little surprised by a couple of the nude scenes, which only pan slightly toward Russo's bare torso, not anything more than that. Although I thought that this film could've done without those particular scenes to get the point across, the storyline and characters were spot on, with Brosnan showcasing the same exact charisma, charm, and determination that we're all so used to seeing in all four of his previous Bond films, despite having one major difference when compared to Bond: Bond's not an art thief, which there's nothing wrong with that, it's just nice to see Brosnan branching out and playing different characters rather than the same ones all the time. I've heard that this is actually one of his favorite films. Makes sense, as it is now one of mine! Props to both Brosnan and Russo on this one. Pierce not only starred in this film, but directed it as well via his production company, Irish Dreamtime. Seems like a lot of work, but all in all, it sure seemed to worth it!
