Confidence is a wonderful film where Ed Burns plays Ed Burns (can I call you Ed?) and Rachel Weisz plays Rachel Weisz. It even has Dustin Hoffman playing a weird Dustin Hoffman.

About this movie


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 they scheme their way to the royal scam. It's a poor man'sOcean's Eleven, just as enjoyable in its own way, beginning when con artist Jake (Edward Burns) discovers he's accidentally stolen from an eccentric crime boss (Dustin Hoffman, oozing threat in a fine character turn). Promising to make amends by pulling the biggest con of his career, Jake adds a feisty pickpocket (Rachel Weisz) to his crew, which includes scene-stealer Paul Giammatti and Andy Garcia as a disheveled FBI agent (or is he?). With a cast like this you can't go wrong, butConfidencecons itself into thinking it's original, while Burns's abundant voice-overs state the obvious and plot twists unfold with minimal surprise. It hardly matters;Confidencemay be derivative, but it's still recommendable.--Jeff Shannon
