Karel Reisz United States, 1974

Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Gambler

He doesn't smoke, he doesn't drink, he isn't on drugs but, unfortunately, he's a compulsive gambler. If it weren't for this addiction, James Caan would be the perfect son-in-law: he's also a college teacher, he's got nice shirts, curly hair and a blue Mustang. Everybody likes him so only the taste of blood could possibly wake him up. Strongly recommended.
