Writer/director David Mamet returns to the themes of his first film, House of Games, in this adroit fable about the simple-mindedness of complex-minded executives. Campbell Scott stars as the corporate inventor who's concerned about his employer's integrity - cue smoothly plausible Steve Martin and an elaborate and totally convincing con played on the audience as well as the hapless Scott. Rebecca Pidgeon (Mamet's real-life wife) plays thefemme fatale in a tale told with all the cunning of a three-card trick: now you see it, now you don't.
