Definitely a film that would be in my top 20 favourite films of all time (maybe even top 10). The film is about two talented con artists (Newman and Redford) teaming together to seek revenge on a mafia boss for killing a mutual friend. They do this by non violent means and attempt to con him out of all his money instead. Newman and Redford are both fantastic and is a welcome return to the two working together as they did in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
A great villian (Robert Shaw) as well, a great script with a really good feel to it and shot beautifully for that 1930's like feel, this is highly recommended
