"A movie is only as good as the least talented person associated with it," said Scott Frank at the premier of The Lookout . It's the veteran screenwriter's (Get Shorty, Out of Sight, Minority Report) first directorial foray. Said the first-timer, "On this movie, that person was me." Not that you could tell. The Lookout was a taunt, expertly machinated crime drama and character study, with great performances from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeff Daniels, and Matthew Goode.
