It combines French discipline and nonchalance with an American generosity and high spirits. The dialogue is precise and often witty, qualities it shares with the acting. Full Review

Atlantic City references the action genre only to dismantle it from the inside... With feeling and exuberance, Louis Malle constructs a spectacle. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: A+ -- "Atlantic City" is full of compact social editorializing that elevates its seemingly run-of-the-mill trappings into something sublime by way of its emotionally dependent characters. Full Review

What makes "Atlantic City" sweet -- and that's the word for it -- is the gentleness with which Lou handles his last chance at amounting to something, and the wisdom with which Sally handles Lou. Full Review

Film is blessed with a spare, intriguing script by Yank John Guare, which always skirts impending cliches and predictability by finding unusual facets in his characters and their actions. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- For all the flaws in the plot, the triumvurate of Malle, Lancaster and Sarandon give this moody little thriller a seductive, lingering power. Full Review
Oct 7, 2012
Eclectic, pacy and hard to categorise, it's part crime thriller, part love story, part fairytale, and part a gentle, generous examination of certain dying aspects of American culture. Full Review

Product Description:

Finally available on Blu-ray, Director Louis Malle's "Atlantic City" is a unique romantic thriller you won't forget. The people and the story are magnetic; the background is the city of dreams that almost came true. After Atlantic City is revitalized as a gambling resort destination, the new industry also brings unsettling changes. For Lou (Burt Lancaster), 40 years a bodyguard-boyfriend to aging beauty queen Grace (Kate Reid), his numbers-running sideline escalates to mob involvement. A drug-related slaying leaves him with a small fortune, a new car and a new girl, Sally (Susan Sarandon), who is the perfect completion of his fantasy.
