MATCH­STICK MEN (2003) NINE, 11.30PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Ni­co­las Cage is at his ec­cen­tric best as con artist Roy Waller, an ob­ses­sive-com­pul­sive with pho­bias rang­ing from A to Z, who op­er­ates in Cal­i­for­nia with his pro­tege Frank (Sam Rock­well). The odd panic at­tack aside, Roy’s fran­tic life has some sem­blance of or­der, un­til his shrink urges him to find his es­tranged 14-year-old daugh­ter An­gela (Ali­son Lohman). The union sparks a cri­sis of the heart for Roy, as An­gela be­comes an oc­cu­pa­tional haz­ard. Di­rec­tor Ridley Scott strikes up the same sort of magic he did on Thelma&Louise. ★★★★
