The world of film is changing. For one thing, there’s not much actual film anymore. The future is digital; more and more, it’s streaming on our computers, too. Every week in Legal Download, we survey the landscape online movies to bring you a snapshot of what’s available. This week, we make our mark on the world of con man movies.
THIS WEEK’S THEME: Con Men On Film
I have a proposition for you. See, this guy gave me this watch. He owed me some money, long story, I don’t really want to get into it, but he gave me this watch. It’s a Rolex; look, you can see the logo right there. I’m in a rush, and I need some cash, so I tell you what. Just like he gave it to me, I will give it to you. The watch is worth at least $5,000, but because you seem like such a nice guy, I’ll give it to you for $500. No? Not interested? You think this is a scam and also a fairly silly way to introduce a column on con man movies that are currently available to rent, stream, or purchase online? Well, fine then. You’re no fun.
