Poolhall Junkies (DVD)
Johnny was a poolhall hustler, one of the best, until he discovered how his manager Joe had ruined his life. he left Joe int he hands of some heavy-duty drug dealers and split the scene. Now he's trying to go legit, save his relationship with his girlfriend Tara, and maybe even save his life. Johnny's younger brother Danny is eager to follow in his footsteps -- eager enough to find himself deep in debt to Joe, who has returned with a new poolhall protege. When Danny robs a store to pay back Joe, it's time for his big brother to take his cue. The final game has a payoff that's bigger than money, bigger than life, bigger than either player can imagine. Because somewhere on the edge of the 8-ball waits a man's soul.]]>

We first all agree the movie THE.HUSTLER is an outstanding movie.The Color of Money was also very entertaining but not the same level as films go. This movie isnt trying to be another version of these classics. The plot is different with a very good script and the most realistic (I know there were many set up shots as in all pool movies. However, if you a high level player you can see that Mars Callahan was, is a fine playerwith a nice stroke and is very comfortable on the table. The.same for Jackie.Gleason in the Hustler.
Why is this a fine movie?
The script was real . This.man I.would bet lived the game. He also made great use of his/their limited number of sets without using a lot of gimmicky editing. The cast was.terrific. Im surprised.a movie at this budget level could get Chaz P. ,Rod Steiger and Christopher Walken . Im sure they liked the script.and short.shooting schedule. Mars Callahan is a great talent in all three areas in the making of this film. Acting , writing and directing. I dont know why we havent seen more of him in any of these areas.
What I especially liked was Mars knows players know other.players level very quickly and there is no great hustle. At.least on the table. The real hustling is between people living life and not only playing the game.
The story line is interesting .People making choices. There is some humor, no over the top acting and nice camera work .
Its really a movie that shouldnt be missed if you enjoy this.genre .
I would like to see more of Mars.C. work.. His.work seemed to be multi dimensional and I would like to see more as a writer or director.
