Plot

Jake Green is a hotshot gambler, long on audacity and short on common sense. He's rarely allowed to play in any casino because he is a winner. Jake has taken in so much money over the years, he is the only client of his accountant and older brother Billy. One night, Jake, Billy and their other brother Joe are invited to sit in on a private game, where Jake is expected to lose to Dorothy Macha, a crime boss and local casino owner who can't play for squat, but always wins because people are too scared to beat him. Jake isn't afraid of Macha, and not only beats Dorothy in a quick game of chance, but takes every possible opportunity to insult the man. Jake and his brothers leave the game, and Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake, who ends up working for and being protected by a pair of brothers, Avi and Zack, who are out to take Macha down.
 

Comments

Disappointing, 13 September 2005 Author: afryn-1 from Canada We saw this film at the TFF premiere Sunday night and although the first half was entertaining (despite the seemingly ridiculous premise), it took a turn towards insanity about halfway through and completely lost and disappointed me.Now, I like to consider myself a reasonably intelligent viewer (though maybe I'm wrong) and I love movies that make you think, but this one just went too far. I was really enjoying it up until that point (fast pace, existential musings, unexpected animation!) but there needs to be a balance between ambiguous, cryptic plot twists and some kind of accessible logic. We went home afterwards and talked about it for an hour, trying to figure out if there was even a way to figure it out but it just made us more frustrated (some parts just seem dumb).I look forward to reading other people's opinions as to their interpretations of some key points but I can't help but feel in the end that it was too obscure. Guy Ritchie said before the premiere that he had made a movie that required thinking but I think, in the end, he just ended up alienating the viewer.The audience was definitely dumbfounded on the way out.
