Stephen (Mark Ruffalo) and Bloom (Adrien Brody) in The Brothers Bloom are the type of con artists that take the "artist" moniker to heart. They've spent their entire lives together – they are brothers after all – and have been conning marks practically since birth. Each has their own eccentricities (Bloom is a lover and a dreamer while Stephen loves the pageantry of a great con) and those quirks help make them a great team. And of course, it all wouldn't be possible without their mute partner Bang Bang (Pacific Rim's Rinko Kikuchi).

However, what makes The Brothers Bloom unique as a film is its multi-layered approach to the central con. Good con men movies always center on a truly clever con, but great movies take things to another level by conning the audience. The Brothers Bloom pulls off such a feat and it does it with gusto.
