  • In films? The first thing I think of is Ocean's 11, 12 and 13. Have you considered watching Leverage on TNT instead? They've shown neural programming as a way to influence people, cold readings for fake psychics, lifts, cloning phones, hacking passwords, and various grifts.

  • Leverage is a great example of this and you can watch episodes for free on the TNT website. I also recommend the Heist with Gene Hackman, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Matchstick Men, and the Grifters. Wikipedia has a surprisingly long list describing cons as well.
