A really different kind of film for Ridley Scott, it just shows how talented he is on all fronts. It’s a great caper type story that really hasn’t been done all that well since the 60s, but this is really a standout. The fact that it’s so original and different also makes it a cut above, it’s not your average grifter movie. Nicolas Cage was amazing as an OCD con artist and always gives a signature charisma while on camera. Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman really did a nice job too and worked well at making you buy into the long con. It’s very manipulative, which I loved, but a lot of people will take it as a weakness.
