Confidence

IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY. IT’S ABOUT THE MONEY.

A gang of con artists, led by the very confident Jake Vig (Edward Burns), is forced to do a job for a mob boss; a banker is the target. Director James Foleyā€™s stab at making a film in the vein of Quentin Tarantino looks more like something Guy Ritchie would do. Thereā€™s a lot going on; blood is spilled, the dialogue is smart and the narrative jumps back and forth in time. Yet so little of it seems fresh and exciting; Jake narrating the story at gunpoint is not very convincing. Of course, Dustin Hoffman is fun as the ADD-inflicted mob boss.Ā 

2003-U.S. 98 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ James Foley. Cast: Edward Burns (Jake Vig), Rachel Weisz (Lily), Paul Giamatti (Gordo), Dustin Hoffman, Andy Garcia, Luis GuzmĆ”nā€¦ Robert Forster.
