1974. USA. Dir: Robert Altman. With Elliott Gould, George Segal. 108 min.
Two compulsive gamblers–without much in common besides incorrigible bad luck and charisma in spades–meet in a seedy L.A. poker parlor and embark on a seemingly carefree journey of boozing and betting. With Altman’s signature style and incisiveness, this light and entertaining film slowly sneaks up to a much deeper, affecting denouement.
