Movie review: The Sting



Good heavens Robert Redford was an all-American cutie in his younger days. This is a cleverly written story of flim-flam grifting, artfully and wittily acted.

Paul Newman schools younger con Redford in the finer points of the long con (thanks, Lost, for the education).

Stylistically, I like the act-marker pages. They're something like the scene placards of old, but updated for a more modern audience. The background music fits well.

All in all, a fun movie, worth the watch.
