"I'm the best you ever seen, Fats. I'm the best there is. And even if you beat me, I'm still the best."

The Hustler is another classic film that reminds audiences that lots of the world's greatest movies are filmed in black and white. The film is an atmospheric adaptation of a novel by Walter Tevis.

At first glance the film superficially looked like a simple film abo... read more

'Just a classic about pool' was the first thing that came straight into my head about this film before I saw it. When I watched it, I was half wrong. Yeah, it featured pool but it wasn't about pool. It just happened to be of interest to the characters and part of the story but I still wouldn't really call it a sport film. Anyway, my thoughts on the film went beyond my expectations and I absolutely... read more

Afamada película del director de "Lilith", para mi gusto su obra más redonda.

A pesar de ello, no debí verla en mi mejor momento, porque reconociendo su buena factura e interés, no me pareció tan gran cosa. La parte melodramática está muy cogida por los pelos: corta y poco precisa relación del protagonista con su excelente partenaire femenina, la siempre exquisita Piper L... read more

Paul Newman scores as pool shark "Fast Eddie" Felson, who tours the country hustling games -- even challenging reigning champion Minnesota Fats -- in this brooding drama that explores the synergies between good and evil, love and desperation.

Total Film's 30 Longest Sequel Gaps (30 movies items)

"Sequel: The Color Of Money (1986) How Many Years Between Sequels: 25 years. Do They Acknowledge The Gap? Just about. Martin Scorsese's winning drama is actually set 20 years after The Hustler, which is in keeping with the sequel novel (by Richard Price) that the film's based on. Paul Newman returns as pool extremo Fast Eddie, one of just a handful of actors to reprise a role over two decades after first playing it. In Money, he trains Tom Cruise's fiery, pool-playing whippersnapper (remember"

JP's March 2014 Movie Journal (36 movies items)

" March 10, 2014 1st viewing: Watched on DirecTV (Movie saved on DVR) The Hustler is a movie that I have been wanting to see for some time so I was glad when the opportunity presented itself. The first 1/3 of the movie was great, especially when they were playing pool. Outside of the pool hall, however, the story fell apart for me. It slowed to a crawl and never seem to get going again. I know others will disagree and I respect that, but that is my opinion."
