Newman & Redford

Paul Newman and Robert Redford are my two reasons for watching this. I don’t recall seeing such astonishing, mind-blowing performances.

The witty dialogue, the soundtrack, the themes of loyalty and deception are the other reasons.

Review of The Sting

The Sting is an ideal example of a fun, forgettable comedy. It's reasonably entertaining, it's pretty clever, and it's well acted. It's no masterpiece, and the twists and characters may feel overused now, but The Sting is still a decent way to spend 2 hours.

Master con man, Johnny Hooker seeks revenge and reward to scam Doyle Lonnegan, a gang leader who killed Hooker's long time cri... read more

A Movie That Doesn't Swindle You

I always felt that scripting a movie that focuses on a successful elaborate con-job really requires an exercizing of creativity from the writer. Bringing in all the elements of the characters & acts to pull off a scheme that is both credible in it's enactment & at the same time fascinating in it's grand unfolding is a balancing act on a extremely narrow margin.
This was one of the 1st. ones... read more

Description: Johnny Hooker is a young con-man who is being taught by Luther. One day they pull one of their con jobs and net themselves a huge roll. What they don't know is that the man they conned is the courier for a numbers runner. And it turns out that the boss, Doyle Lonigan, considers it an attack on him and orders all the people involved terminated. Hooker is shaken down by a crooked cop, Snyder, who threatens to turn him over to Lonigan unless he pays him off. Hooker pays him, he then tries to warn Luther but is too late. He then goes to see Henry Gondorf, a friend of Luther's and a one time great con-man, who has had a bit of bad lu ... (more)

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"24.3. (Teatteri/35 mm) Pidän näistä gangsterimeiningeistä, eikä Puhalluskaan tuota pettymystä niin ulkoisesti kuin sisältä höyryävän hengityksensäkään osalta. Reilu kaksituntinen nokkeluuksia säilyttää mielenkiintonsa ja lopun jymy-yllätys kieltämättä toimi, vaikka viimeiseen ketunhäntään kainalossa olinkin varautunut."

"3/3 Basically just Robert Redford and Paul Newman conning Robert Shaw, with Shaw never having any leverage with him. He just gets conned and he doesn't know anything about it, because he is the bad guy and the two firstly mentioned are the good guys who are out for justice or something. So it's not very interesting. I'd rather see something with unrealistic amounts of twists and turns and tricks in the manner of Mamet's House of Games or The Spanish Prisoner - though both of those movies, espec"
