Twitter Capsule: Ocean's Twelve Inches? Some sputter in its engines, but unusual rhythms, shifting POVs, talented cast make it dance.

VOR:   So shambolic it hardly seems to mind if you skip or dislike it. Still, it takes guts to assemble a film this seemingly listless, seizing titillation and smarts from jaws of sloth and drift.
