An excellent film from an overly ambitious script.
13 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'After The Game' is a little bit confusing and a little bit too complicated for it's own good. But after watching it literally three times I can honestly say that I think it is a very intelligent attempt at great film-making. It suffers mostly from a screenplay that is too thick. But the writer/director, Brewster MacWilliams, obviously has a lot of potential to become a great filmmaker. The theme of after the game of poker lining up perfectly with after the "game" of life is very interesting. The concept that our Karma or actions in this life carry through to the next is also thought provoking, and then the idea that Clyde's father shadows his son's life from an afterlife is also very interesting. The idea that we all follow our parents footsteps and tend to make the same mistakes is also enlightening. I, personally, would love to see what Brewster could do with a bigger budget and big time editor!
