Bielinsky concocts a selection of tantalizing layers, from his Mamet-like dialogue to his chilly visuals.

[Even after] the plot's spiralling, shimmering sleights of hand and its never-ending ruses and deceptions . . . the ending will still pull the rug out from under [you].

This thoroughly engaging and endearing film is as much of a swindle as the plot itself, stealthily stealing your concentration and your affection even as it cheats you of a credible plot.

Clever but not especially compelling.

Argentine writer-director Fabian Bielinsky seems to be a criminal mastermind. Luckily for society, Bielinsky uses his powers for good.

So engaging, so entertaining is this Mametian feast of con games and double-crosses that the subtitles seem to disappear and the reel change marks may as well not exist.

The laughs are dark, the puzzle steadily more engrossing and the surprises, just like Heist, are doozies, up to the finale.

Bielinsky does good work laying the groundwork for doubt, but as the mounting obstacles to the handoff of the stamps become less and less believable, we can sense him straying ever farther from a sensible and satisfying resolution.
