matchstick men

bill, tracey and I went to see Matchstick Men (salon review, ebert review) last night. It was not great, primarily due to the ending, but it had a great performance by Nicolas Cage (who I loved in Adaptation, as well). The movie reminded me of Peter Bogdonavich's Paper Moon, but it had less heart. The ending assumes the audience is too dumb to realize what just happened over the last 2 hours.
