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.

"Re-watch - June 26th/27th Been years since I last watched this & it was far better than I remembered. I can't think of a thing I didn't love about it, so it's been bumped up from an 8."

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E6 - June 2012 (39 movies items)

" This is a dark film, filled with spite and sadness. The ugly nature of this film came as a surprise to me, especially considering the era. Still, life is ugly and winning in life is learning to embrace what is ugly and painful, just as much as what is good and simple. After watching this film I can officially tell you that I'm never going to watch "The Color of Money" (1986). Much like my feelings about "In the Mood For Love" and the follow up film "2046". It could only distort my feelings "
