Jack Manfred is an aspiring writer going nowhere fast. To make ends meet, and against his better judgment, he takes a job as a croupier. He finds himself drawn into the casino world and the job gradually takes over his life while his relationship with his girlfriend Marizz begins to deteriorate.

Our take

With a stylish cynicism reminiscent of his classic Get Carter, Mike Hodges revives the seedy glamor of London’s gambling underworld in this twisty crime tale starring a deliciously sardonic Clive Owen. Like the askew reflections found in the casinos’ walls of mirrors, no one is ever what they seem.
