Con Artist, Thank You Very Much
Ridley Scott's Matchstick Men is a superb example of movie making and is a great story to watch unfold. While the movie is ostensibly about con artists and their scams, it follows the burgeoning relationship between one con man, Roy Waller (Nicholas Cage), and the fourteen-year-old daughter he never even knew existed. Though he admonishes his daughter that crime doesn't pay in an effort to prevent her from following in his footsteps, he seems to be doing fairly well for himself. But appearances can be deceiving.
