"Sydney" (USA 1996, 102 min.) [1/2008]
(aka "Hard Eight", aka "Last Exit Reno")
Paul Anderson (W/D), Philip Baker Hall, John C. Reilly, Gwyneth Paltrow, Samuel L. Jackson
The director Paul Anderson's first feature length film, has at least the prerequisites of a good, solid independent production. If you value witty dialogue, excellent photography, good acting set in a gambling environment then you should not pass this one up. Only the story line could have offered a few more twists and turns but this might just be the reason why it has gained some cult status.
