Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A well-acted and intriguing exploration of dishonesty in its varied forms, leavened with a dry comic touch.
Fresh: Matchstick Men never really casts off its cloak of artificiality and calculation; its pleasures are minor, however distracting they may be.
Rotten: Matchstick Men isn't even remotely intricate; it's not even particularly interesting.
Fresh: A clever look at con artists and their games of deception.
Uhhhhh. Uhhhhh. Uhhhhhh.
