The beginning and up to the middle was a real drag/boring and required a ton of 120X FF but it got going and was entertaining until the end.

Although dated, it is a good study in character motives. Joe Mantegna is the most believable in this noir film.

Meet the actual world of Gambling!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Very 'Precise', if said in one word. In this film you will witness day to day life characters, the plot is simplified but its not just about a psychiatrist getting acquainted with a gambler, its much more deeper than that. Joe Mantegna is simply brilliant, succeeds in playing the role of a gambler to perfection, he is very precise and shines with flamboyancy throughout the film. Lindsay Crouse is excellent and her chemistry with Mantegna is so strong and deep, you can't help but glue your eyes to the pair, every single dialogue, every single action or even a movement grabs your attention. The film gets dark slowly, situations slowly get unpredictable and then you start wondering whom to trust and whom not to. The film is wroth watching many times, its totally a joy ride."
