THE GRIFTERS
June 29, 2017  | By David Bianculli

MGM HD, 8:25 p.m. ET

 

This 1990 movie, directed by Stephen Frears with an obvious (and successful) goal of producing a modern, sexy, creepy exemplification of film noir, is driven by a trio of superlative performances. John Cusack plays a con man torn between two con women, played by Annette Bening and Anjelica Huston. One portrays his girlfriend, the other his mother – and both, like Cusack, are unforgettable.
