Con Me If You Can
Good luck keeping up with who’s scamming who in these fiendishly seductive looks at the art and psychology of the con. Fraudsters keep it in the family in Stephen Frears’s coolly stylish neonoir THE GRIFTERS, featuring a bravura performance from Anjelica Huston as a master con artist not above double-crossing her own son. Then, David Mamet further explores the complex dynamic between scammer and victim in his ingeniously tricksy directorial debut, HOUSE OF GAMES, in which a psychiatrist allows herself to be drawn into a seedy confidence man’s web of deceit.
