SYNOPSIS

Atlantic City may be one of the most atypical gangster/casino movies ever done. From the brilliant and shocking moment when we watch an old, half-retired mobster giving a foot massage to an old lady, we know that we won’t have lots of thrills, suspense or gun action, but mainly a character study as subtle and perceptive as most of those in the filmography of Louis Malle; something that, truth be told, is easier to pull off when you have two thespians like Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon delivering for you career-peak performances.
