Casino Jack. George Hickenlooper. Here we have a movie which title sucks. I can’t help but think that any movie with the word Casino in it, is bound to not live up to it. We had Casino & Casino Royale so the guys should have come up with something better. The movie is actually not half-bad but that is due to Kevin Spacey and the story itself since that is a true account. Watch the scene in front of the mirror, not the best mirror scene ever, but highly amusing. The director died 7 weeks before the movie premiered. I can’t help but think this guy had an excellent start into the movie business and sort of fell short near the end. His first three projects were: Art, Acting, and the Suicide Chair: Dennis Hopper (1988), Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse (1991) and Picture This: The Times of Peter Bogdanovich in Archer City, Texas (1991). Pretty awesome if you ask me. (2010)
