Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 05/02/2003
"...Its shell-game plot is alive with organic trickery..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 05/01/2003
"...Hoffman has fun with his role as the sleazy crime lord; it's one of his most energetic performances in recent years..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2003
"CONFIDENCE is a con-trick thriller in the style of David Mamet..."

Product Description:

Ed Burns gives the best performance of his career in James Foley's fast-moving CONFIDENCE. Foley, who directed David Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS, has learned much from his mentor, making a who's-conning-whom film worthy of the master of the genre. Burns plays Jake Vig, the leader of a small group of con artists who unknowingly steals money from a sleazy but powerful underworld lord known as King. In order to get his dough back, King forces Vig and his gang to pull off a nearly impossible con that could get nearly everyone involved killed. Meanwhile, Vig is being watched closely by a stubbly federal agent who is following the money.

Foley has put together a terrific cast, including Paul Giamatti and Rachel Weisz as part of Vig's crew, Andy Garcia as the fed, Dustin Hoffman as King, and Luis Guzman and Donal Logue as two cops on the take. As in Mamet's films, the audience will have to keep guessing whose side the characters are on right up until the final shot, never quite knowing who's conning whom.
