Cinema: 3000 Miles To graceland

Directed by Demian Lichtenstein

A gang dressed as Elvis impersonators robs a Las Vegas casino, then falls out. Kevin Costner is the dangerously deranged leader. Kurt Russell is the guy whose niceness develops under the impress of bloody, quick-cut, morally weightless mayhem. The movie means to be chic and hip, a compendium of all the latest visual mannerisms. Mostly it demonstrates how quickly they deteriorate into distancing cliches. Courteney Cox is good as a sexy, hard-pressed single mom, but she alone can't redeem the prevailing stupidity.
