A workaholic psychiatrist, the author of a bestseller on compulsive behaviour, develops an obsession with a group of con men and the scams they perpetrate. Attracted by the vicarious thrill of their games, she is eager to graduate from observer to participant. The movie starts slowly, but becomes a gripping and pleasurable thriller of serpentine twists, hard-boiled Chandleresque dialogue and surprise double-crosses. A Chinese box of a film.
