Superb stuff, gents. I\'ve always liked the way the ending skews into a kind of beautiful poetic justice. It\'s almost magic realist. But that\'s casinos for you. If anyone else is interested, we wrote a top ten gambling movies at FilmSlash, which includes this classic. http://www.filmslashmagazine.com/node/51 **Also, could the retards stop posting about war games and mp3 players.**
