Showdown № 17 – Con Artistry

Swindles, screw-overs, bait-and-switches. The con artist has been a classic character since filmmaking began, slotting neatly into everything from thrillers to romantic comedies. Grifters: we love to hate ’em. So pony up, suckers. Small-time or big-time, long con or quick scam, we want your top films about confidence tricksters. Who’s the cleverest scoundrel of them all?
