Art Of The Steal, Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp and Jay Baruchel
"The Art of the Steal” isn’t just the name of Jonathan Sobol’s sophomore effort; it’s virtually a genre unto itself, thanks to countless movies about low-level con artists, their team of accomplices and the victims/ adversaries they’re trying to outwit. But even if the film doesn’t raze genre conventions or reinvent the notion of grifting as audiences know it, Sobol creates an ensemble as scruffy and indefatigably appealing as its star, Kurt Russell, as he shuffles dexterously through a heist scenario just implausible and charming enough to be convincing.
