The Hustler

I just finished watching The Hustler. I recommend it to anyone. it is 134 minutes, and every second matters. it is not fluffed up with un needed action, or sex or violence.  Sure it has the inference of action and sex and violence, but it doesn't wast our time showing us those things. It's a tough movie that takes us through the journey of Fast Eddie one of the greatest pool players around, from looser, and two bit hustler, to a winner, but only after he loses his father figure, and the love of his life Sarah. This movie is a prime example of why I am a much bigger fan of a good story, over one fluffed up with the newest technology. For a little more insight into my feelings about this check out this post.
