Enjoyed almost everything about it, except for the fucking voice over. It is necessary, but the cringeworthy way it's done almost killed it for me. Hodges in full control and Owen owning every goddamned second of it.
Hodges offers a really interesting - and often neglected - look at the world of gambling and the cynicism that adorns it, in the process also revealing man's dark wishes for each other.
i thought this was a terrible movie. my sister made me watch it because i was living with her in her teeeeny tiny studio in tucson and she has a huge crush on clive owen. barf.
A sharp little film that never goes where you expect it to
The world breaks everyone.
A great little film about manipulation, the most shocking thing was Clive Owen with blond hair. I enjoyed everything about this movie.
Brilliant and effortless.
3 for the plot, but the atmosphere is really noir-ish and clive owen just kills it
