"Watched: 4/7-8/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: A wonderful cast who all performed to near perfection, but 'Grifters' never fully unravels, and it all just seems like an episode from a T.V Show that had me wanting much more. I also loved the dark, noirish vibe it gave off, similar that of 'Double Indemnity' or 'L.A Confidential'. That unfortunately cannot save the generic, lackluster storytelling, in which seems to be on Autopilot throughout. Still, though, not a half bad flick. "
