Canadian mis-fit banker's gambling problem, makes for surprisingly dull viewing.
on 6 April 2016
Truly disappointing expose of Canadian mis-fit banker's gambling problem. We see him in the vortex, but never really understand what drives him or anything further about him. All the supports are pastiche and 2-dimensional. How could a subject like gambling, ingredients like a high-rolling casino backdrop and John Hurt as a wily casino owner result such a dull movie. We know little more by the end of the protagonist, than we did at the beginning.
