Bathed in self-conscious cool,Confidenceis a heist caper in which the heist is unimportant. As you might expect fromGlengarry Glen Rossdirector James Foley, this pulpy concoction is more interested in giving good actors a lot of hip, salty dialogue as … see full wiki

How to feel the effect of a Con game

CONFIDENCE is a film that exudes same. Made with dazzling artistry and classy cinematography technique this film about grifters and their psyches is well scripted, well directed and very well acted by a team of professionals. That, friends, is how a confidence game works. CONFIDENCE makes us, the audience, feel as though we are on the inside of a con game only to pull one over on us at the end. Ed Burns burns up the screen in a slick and powerful performance. He is ably abetted by his hand selected team - Rachel Weisz (as beautiful and sensitive as always), Paul Giamatti in a star turn as Gordo, Brian Van Holt as a slippery Miles, and frankly surprisingly good Franky G as Lupus. They are up against a wily and devilishly fine Dustin Hoffman and his hench men, Robert Forster as the head of the bank the grifters target, and Andy Garcia in a weasely, well acted role as Burns' nemesis (or is he?). The pacing is breathtaking, the lines are crisp and snorty, and the movement in and out of the present and past is mesmerizing. This is a fine film for Director James Foley and his screenwriter. The background sound may cover the lines at times so be prepared to back track now and then to keep up with this jaunty, naughty team in action!
