The Hustler

The Hustler:at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! The Hustler is directed by the steadfast Robert Rossen. His black and white aesthetic helps smoke up the air with his dingy pool hall sets and sleazy cast of realistically tragic characters.Rossen's direction leaves you with empty spaces of room filled with a few characters of magnificent presence. His shots hold on faces, hands, and cues to squeeze out all the tension of his shots with a horrifying suspense. I always felt uneasy watching The Hustler as you never knew what would happen.Paul Newman is gripping and upsetting as the hotheaded con artist "Fast" Eddie Felson. His quick wit and quick temper lead to tragedy of his own making. Newman plays the distracted, distraught, and forlorn loser turned professional pool hall hustler with an effortless skill. Newman makes Eddie look skilled as a pool player and affectionate as a lover. His frustration at being bested in pool is admirable, but Newman's troubled anguish at his equally relied upon relationship is the most convincing. Paul Newman was a cool actor, a funny actor, but also a realistic dramatic actor who characters always feel grounded.Jackie Gleason is great as the calm veteran, whose experience gives him a patient terror. Gleason's massive Minnesota Fats is amiable, yet intimidating. His pool playing skills are cleverly formidable, but it's his cool calculated demeanor that makes Fats memorable.George C. Scott is at his most sleazy and unethical as Bert Gordon. His gangster gambler is more reminiscent of the devil conning men into selling their souls, as Murray Hamilton's Findlay remarks to Scott. George C. Scott eyes up a room in a moment and glares at all the events taking place with a knowing presence that you cannot ignore. His performance is excellent and infuriating as Scott makes you love his likable blunt gambler, while despising his shrewd sleazy conduct.On the other hand, Myron McCormick is endearing as Charley Bums. "Fast" Eddie's father figure is charming in an old hustler way with his honesty and sincerity towards Eddie. He gives it to Newman straight and you appreciate it, even though Eddie does not see the light as he does not heed Charley's warning.Lastly, the most compelling performance other than Paul Newman's has to be Piper Laurie. Her alcoholic intellectual is a woman in despair. She's a strong woman dealing with despair, coping with past trauma, and hoping for something, or someone, better than she's got. I think Laurie captures what is so tragic about The Hustler's broken promise for an entertaining little hustler con. She makes it all so real as the consequences of "Fast" Eddie's choices are dealt out to her. Laurie is brilliantly charming and deeply disturbing to see a woman so hurt.All in all, The Hustler is the perfect slow burn sports drama. The pool games are gripping and the humanistic drama with riddled with parables. I think The Hustler is worth seeing once.official mail order,max 86% off,dallas mallThe Hustler

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Newman is a top-notch pool hustler who gets cocky and challenges Gleason's Minnesota Fats to the match of his life.

"h3"Additional Features "p"The DVD debut of this landmark drama is exceptional. Besides a luminous widescreen transfer and picture-in-picture deconstruction of the pool shots by billiards master Mike Massey, the commentary track is unique--and we hope starts a new trend. Film historian Jeff Young hosts an oral history of the film from a variety of sources including Paul Newman, legendary editor Dede Allen (who nearly steals the show), assistant director Ulu Grosbard, "i"Time magazine critic Richard Schickel, and director Robert Rossen's daughter, Carol. The result is a free-following collection of memories created decades after the film wrapped (and many of the key players have died). Don't want the fine details? The new 25-minute documentary hits the major points with expertise. --Doug Thomas

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
