    The subtlest role in the film goes to Reeve, and he doesn't try to soften his character's edges – he plays the part as it lies on the page: as a clean, slick scumbag. Watching Street Smart, it's jarring to picture him playing Superman the same year. Here, he's using that genetic package of perfect American good looks not for good, but to do what ambitious American men have been doing for years: winning the game by whatever means necessary.
