directed by David Mamet
USA 1997

Joseph Ross (Campbell Scott) is about to hit the corporate big time. His design process will produce millions for his employers. It is scrupulously guarded. On a fiduciary excursion to the Caribbean he meets a wealthy and mysterious stranger named Jimmy Dell (Steve Martin). A reticent boss and a wanton secretary all add to an essentail con-game - but who is conning who?. Mamet's tailor-made dialogue and intricate plot twists will have your gray cells maxing-out till the finale. Probably my favorite David Mamet work and one of the best films of the 90's.  out of

Comments:

The DVD is far less stellar than the brilliant film. Columbia Tri-Star have produced some great DVDs in the past... and some real clunkers. This falls somewhere in the middle. Anamorphic, yet occasionally soft image, colors are a little washed, original audio, gaudy subtitles and no extras. A shame because this film deserved much better.  out of
