Editors Note The Sting was rapturously received upon its 1973 release; George Roy Hill's film made a box-office killing and won seven Academy Awards. Some critics, though, have dismissed it as slight, a callow exploitation of the charismatic pairing of Robert Redford and Paul Newman. Matthew Specktor's passionate, lyric interrogation turns The Sting on its head, on its side and right-side-up to unpack the film's giddy complexity and secret, melancholic heart. With nuanced interpretation of its arching moods and themes, and gimlet-eyed observation of its dizzying sleights-of-hand, Specktor reveals The Sting as both an enduring human drama and a meditation on art-making itself, an ode to the necessary pleasure of being fooled at the movies.
