While it sometimes fails to live up to its title, Confidence ultimately, wins us over-in short, it dazzlingly does what all good cons are supposed to do.

Garcia, who plays the least glamorous role of his life, does the best job of thieving each scene he's in.

Confident performances from confident performers, indeed, all chewing the kind of post-Tarantino dialogue that's dotted the genre's recent landscape.

Foley has definitely had his share of bombs - remember Madonna in Who's That Girl, or Marky Mark Wahlberg in Fear - it is apparent that he has found his niche with Confidence.

The problem here is, however, that the real game is the filmmakers'. As I left the theater, I couldn't shake the feeling that I'd been had.

They meet cute when she picks his pocket; Jake admires her nerve, if not exactly her skill, and he makes an offer, Walter Neff-ishly: "I'm talking about a grift, and it pays well."
