The Thomas Crown Affair

Hello! Do you know what the Long John Review is? I’m not sure how far back you’ve read, but basically during a Christmas visit to Pin Mill, I fell asleep in the middle of a film. That film I will now attempt to recap in how easy it is to sleep to ——– THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR!


When I was in college, Liz (our fave Australian lady) played a snippet due to the relation to the famous Migrette painting with the man with an apple in front of his face. Also they play this song and it’s brilliant.

As far as I can remember, it’s about a man who does a thing (an art heist-y thing) and a lady with red hair definitely loves him from afar. It was the late 90s, aka the mid 90s as everyone knows that the 90s finished in 2004. The fashion screams 90s, which for some reason has come back in the last two years (why? why? why is that? when will the 90s revival be over?).

I THINK the lady with the red hair is a detective, but oF COURSE THEy FaLL In LovE SIGH and at some point she wears a very sheer dress and does brilliant dancing.

Why am I being so scant on the details you may ask? Because I FELL ASLEEP RLY QUICKLY BECAUSE IT’S REALLY EASY TO SLEEP TO!

I woke up at the BEST BIT (you’ll know if you watch it) with all the briefcases and apples and Nina Simone was playing.

At the end he fakes his own death or something and then he and the ginger lady run away together by accident and she threatens to break his arm and then they kiss THE END. WTF.

But how sleep-able is it?
The Thomas Crown Affair is impossible NOT to sleep to!
I would give it 1/10 for the actual film
If you’re looking for a film to sleep to, absolutely watch The Thomas Crown Affair 10/10 sleepable.
