Modest short about a man with a gambling addiction
28 May 2003 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This is moderately interesting short about a young man who's gambled himself into debt and is now scrambling to get out of the situation.

The story has the suspense the situation entails but doesn't seem to go any further. It seems a mere recounting of events with no lessons learned, no real surprises and not enough information about the characters to like them or really care about what happens to them.

As with many shorts, a lot of detail is left out but in this story so much back story has been left out that the film is robbed of any real power or interest.
