Essential classic film.

"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.

A classic

“It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. To be honest, before watching the damned thing, I was actually completely unaware of its reputation and I think I decided to give it a try just because the review on the TV magazine was really positive. Eventually, I was completely blown away by the whole thing and it turned out to be one of the best cinematic surprises I ever watched. First of all, for some reasons, I have always been fascinated by the pool game and by pool hustlers and this movie is just by far the best ever made dealing with this subject. Indeed, it looked gorgeous, Paul Newman gave one of his best performances and the whole thing was just really damned entertaining. Eventually, 25 years later, they would release a sequel” read more

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (436 movies items)

"16.9, Netflix Tuntuu pitemmältä kuin oikeasti on. Hyvä roolisuoritus Newmanilta, mutta vaikka Piper Laurien esittämä naisystävä onkin keskeinen osa Newmanin hahmon kehitystä, eivät parin yhteiset kohtaukset jaksa pahemmin innostaa. Newmanin poikamainen mutta toisaalta hiukan epävarma pelurihahmo tuntuu menettävän jotain olennaista, kun tämän nakkaa keskelle parisuhteen tyypillisimpiä haasteita."
