George Clooney's Still Got It
Perfectly cast, George Clooney is completely believable as the aging assassin, Jack. 'The American' follows Jack to the Italian countryside where he must complete his final assignment before retiring and also find a way to continue living without his past career. He befriends a lady of the night, Clara, and the local priest. Made similarly to an art film, 'The American' relies on action and creative camera angles more so then dialogue making each line spoken interesting and important. I highly recommend 'The American'.
