A fantastic film! It's a terrific story... with a suspenseful...meaningful... well-acted and well-directed ending.
8-BALL is one of the best modern crime dramas I've seen. The realism and naturalism is there. In everything.
I admire the setting and noir-influenced camera work.
I really appreciate filmmakers who understand that ONE GUN SHOT is more moving... and more exciting to an audience... than a hundred gun shots.
Excellent cast... the actors are perfect fits for the parts they play.
Eero Aho played his narcissistic sociopath brilliantly.
This is first time I've seen Jessica Grabowsky. Very impressive performance. She nailed the sensitivity and strength of her character. So much so... all due respect to the very talented Amy Adams... Jessica Grabowsky would have also made a great Margret Keane in BIG EYES.
This is also my first time seeing Pirkka-Pekka Petelius in a film. He's perfectly cast... with that slightly evil arch in his eye brow... as the cop who is up to something. But what? And why?
Mikko Kouki gives another solid performance that smoothly transitions from the slightly comic to densely tragic.
Mikko Leppilampi gave an intense and edgy performance.
Rather than spoil it for you with spoilers, I'll just say this: If you like modern crime dramas... you'll appreciate 8-BALL.
