House of Games

Psychiatrist Lindsay Crouse enters the world of con men, among them Joe Mantegna. Written and directed by David Mamet.

-This is a terrific, little film.
-Visually it's pretty basic.
-The dialogue...

-Even a street scene is made to look as if it takes place on a stage, with a limited amount of actors. There are no big crowd scenes, every person you see plays a role.
-We all play a role.
-We do?
