The Killer
4 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie doesn't show the worst things that addiction can take you too but it comes close and it does show the risks which is appropriate given that it is about gambling. Mostly about how personal responsibility relates to addiction but it shows a little of the problems in society, with online poker being easy to access and easy to spend large amounts of money. It is quite an intimate portrait of psychological suffering giving the main actress a chance to show off and her performance is sincere, the rest of the cast is similarly convincing. Paris at night provides a good background for the excitement of high stakes poker as well as underground game. As someone who went deeply into debt and hid a psychological condition I can say that it is an accurate portrayal what can go wrong and how hard it can be to come back after burning too many bridges.
