Matchstick Men

 

USA 2003, 116 minutes
Dir. Ridley Scott
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Comedy

 

Aroview: A moderately engaging caper comedy from dir. Ridley Scott starring Nicolas Cage as an obsessive-compulsive type whose profession as a conman (with fellow “matchstick man” Sam Rockwell) is compromised by the arrival of the 14-year-old daughter he’s never met.

Arguably less smart than ‘smart alec’, its all surfaces and machismo-cool, but it’s the plot that finally contrives itself to a point where any possible outcome (however twisted or straight) leaves not much room for an either convincing or lasting impression.
