    Atlantic City

    As if his 1940’s noir hoodlum had lived to see the 1980’s, Lancaster’s Lou Pasco catches only faint echoes of those glory days between his small numbers running and petty errand running for an aging widow of a notorious gangster. As Atlantic City disintegrates before him, Lou maintains – like the Leopard – his dignity and a tender awareness of the station to which age and cultural change have taken him. When a drug deal brings the crime underworld on his heels, money in his pocket and a charming young woman at his side, he accepts this second youth with a giddy astonishment and chivalrous self-possession tempered by the wisdom of age. Rather than fall into tried-and-true mannerisms, Lancaster embraces Louis Malle’s sweet rendering with the restraint of an actor humbly consenting to yet another reincarnation.
