  2. konochingo's rating of the film House of Games

    All the twists and turns were quite predictable but the way this movie concluded was nonetheless shocking. One of the more strangely cathartic but also quite fucked up scenes. Otherwise good performances all around and an amusing way to engage with "serious" themes that are so often overwrought on the silver screen.

  3. William's rating of the film House of Games

    3.5 Is the acting in this supposed to be a Bressonian sort of thing or what?

  6. Allison Rung's rating of the film House of Games

    Of mild historical interest because it's Mamet's directorial début. The plot turns on a supposedly brilliant con man's con of a supposedly brilliant psychiatrist. Not a bad set-up but the film's devoid of the trappings of intelligence that (I imagine) would be so fun to construct (thinking of "Eroica" in Five Easy Pieces, the silly memory tricks in Good Will Hunting).

  7. Nathan Silva's rating of the film House of Games

    Unfortunately for me I've already seen too much of this kind of movies to know exactly what's going to happen next. Thats the problem with con artists movies: you are fooled only once.

  8. Hollywood Overdose's rating of the film House of Games

    It's like knowing a magic trick, if you see it a second time you have nothing left to see. It's a one time show but one good though. 0 yawns.

  9. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film House of Games

    It almost convinced me, but the narrative falls apart towards the end. Still, House of Games is a great directorial debut for Mamet: enticing, tense and loaded with great visuals.

  11. Elephants_Gerald's rating of the film House of Games

    It was fun, but I could also see it coming from a mile away. It also takes a very spectacular actor (and they exist) to pull off Mamet's direction to be wooden and dry. The two leads can't pull it off. Mike needs to be convincing and charismatic – if this guy existed in real life, he'd be a bad con artist. No one would believe him. Fun, but not fun enough.

    Gotta love Mamet's scripts!

  13. Ahmet UJeschk's rating of the film House of Games

    Good script, Good Joe Montegna, Good vintage Camel & Winston, badly slow tempo, bad Lindsay Crouse performance.

  14. narcekirdegi's rating of the film House of Games

    considering the year it was made, can be kinda milestone. worths a remake in fact. good dtory, average acting, frozen gestures, kinda noir atmosphere. truely worths watching, for whom wants to take the darker streets of themselves.

  16. gucluaydogdu's rating of the film House of Games

    Good for the time it was made... Yet, many better adaptations of such stories have been made since then. Congratulations to Mamet for such a debut ofcourse.

  18. Diogo Xará's rating of the film House of Games

    I can only think of one word when I think about this film: Dry. I don't know why. Badass camera shots.

  19. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film House of Games

    Qué es sino el arte del engaño un tipo de psicología. Un grupo de personajes timando a otros. Todo de pronto es apariencia, siendo una de las víctimas la que supuestamente es experta en la psicología de los hábitos y obsesiones humanas. "Casa de juegos" a la mitad es predecible salvo por ese giro obsesivo de su personaje femenino, una que halló en el quiebre de la ley pública su terapia.

  22. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film House of Games

    What a pity that such a great story and a first class script together with a fabulous performance by Joe Mantegna is compromised by Lindsay Crouse sleepwalking instead of acting. This could have and should have been a 5 star movie.

  23. CREDERE OBBEDIRE COMBATTERE's rating of the film House of Games

    why not cast people who can act instead?

  24. Rob Flicks's rating of the film House of Games

    Absolutely garbage. Poorly shot, poorly written and most importantly poorly acted. This is a TV movie, which I have no idea why it was adopted by the Criterion Collection, and it's a prime example of nepotism... Lindsay Crouse is horrible.
