Movie Review: Matchstick Men

Watched this on DVD at Lindsay's Tuesday night, on her recommendation.

Matchstick Men is a clever movie about an OCD con artist (Nicolas Cage) whose 14 year old daughter suddenly shows up in his life and soon becomes involved in learning his trade.

It's not stealing after all if they willingly give you their money, right?

Nicolas Cage does an awesome job acting out such a complex character, but the sheer amount of smoking he does ended up really turning me off. That many closeups of cigarettes was starting to make me feel sick through the screen. *ugh*

The plot-twists in this movie are clever, and almost make it worth watching a second time to see the foreshadowing.

Rating: 3 stars.
