First, I need an artiste to watch this movie and help me understand why people were literally ogling at metal weird looking things called art pieces. I tried to admire and be mesmerised but I failed to find anything fascinating about them.
That aside, The Con Artist is a nice movie especially because its plot is clever and mostly unpredictable. The title has a clever ring to it as well perhaps because it is rather ambiguous. It comes off like a tale about a conman that has mastered the art of coning or an artist an artist that is a conman and has mastered the art of both.
It is about ex convict, Vince (Rossif Sutherland) who is being forced into the trade that led him to jail by his former boss Kranski (Donald Sutherland).
He has to choose between that and what gallery owner Belinda (Rebecca Romijn) has to offer. He decided to play along to both and oh boy, does he make the movie interesting or what?
