The Gambler - 1997
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageInspired both by the Dostoevsky novel THE GAMBLER and the events that inspired it, Karoly Makk's THE GAMBLER is a fascinating blend of fact and fiction that illuminates the gray area between the artist and his art. Michael Gambon stars as Dostoevsky, a passionate man whose addiction to gambling has left him penniless. When his publisher agrees to take on his debts, Dostoevsky signs a contract stating that he will produce a new novel within 27 days or he will turn over the rights to all his future work. Desperate to make the deadline, Dostoevsky hires a young stenographer, Anna, to take dictation for him. As he feverishly dictates the account of a gambler and his stormy love life, the film inter cuts both the fictional scenes being dictated as well as events from Dostoevsky's and Anna's lives that closely parallel the events of the novel. THE GAMBLER is both a riveting blend of Dostoevsky's real and imagined lives, bolstered by a star turn from Mr. Gambon as well as Luise Rainer's first screen appearance in 55 years.

The Good Thief - 2002
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageIrish director Neil Jordan (THE CRYING GAME, MICHAEL COLLINS) and veteran actor Nick Nolte combine their talents for this breezy heist picture. Bob (Nolte) is a retired master thief and gambler living as an expatriot in France. His past robberies are the stuff of underworld legend, but he's given it all up, and fallen into a twilight life of heroin addiction and seedy gambling dens. Then a chance encounter with an attractive young runaway (Nutsa Kukhianidze) inspires him to clean up his act and take one last big job; an elaborate modern art heist at a swanky Riviera casino. Standing in his way is a cagey police inspector (Tchéky Karyo) who is determined to bring him down, even though the two are longtime friends. The twisty caper plotting compliments a fun cast (including Emir Kusturica and Gérard Darmon as two of Bob's brothers in crime), clever dialogue, stylish direction, and pretty Riviera scenery. Loosely modeled on Jean Pierre Melville's BOB LE FLAMBEUR, this is something of a pet project for Jordan and it's obvious he's invested himself into every detail of the production. The result is both elegant and warmly quirky. As for Nolte, he seems to be having a terrific time; the charming old rascal role fits him perfectly, and Kukhianidze proves his match with an aplomb beyond her years. Ralph Fiennes has a small role as a disreputable art dealer.

ESPN: The 2003 World Series of Poker - Season 1 - 2003
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageThe World Series of Poker is held every year at Harrah's Horseshoe Casino, and is looked forward to year-round by poker enthusiasts. Begun in 1970 by Benny Binion, it has grown in audience and participation numbers, and offers 33 events for players to flex their gambling muscles in pursuit of the multi-million dollar prize. A marathon game that isn't over until one player holds all the chips, it is inevitably an exciting, suspenseful, and often surprising competition that ultimately determines the world champion of poker. 2003 marked a particularly momentous occasion in the history of the world's premiere poker event, when Chris Moneymaker, who made it to the table through a satellite competition entered for $40, and walked away a millionaire. Competing against over 800 of the world's best professional poker players, the 27-year-old Moneymaker was the most unlikely champion in poker history, and now ESPN has made the entire competition available for home viewing without commercial interruption. Audiences can watch the impossible play out before their eyes, observing the mixture of skill, luck, and strategy that made one man's dreams come true!
