The Grifters ★★★½

A gritty, noir film that seems older than it's 1990 date would have you believe. If you are familiar with the writing of Jim Thompson, this film will please you. Great screenplay by Donald Westlake. Very good performances by Huston and Bening, somewhat less so by Cusack. Might remind you of Blood Simple by the Coen brothers for the twists and turns.
