Philip Baker Hall,
John has lost all his money. He sits outside a diner in the desert when Sydney happens along, buys him coffee, then takes him to Reno and shows him how to get a free room without losing much money. Under Sydney's fatherly tutelage, John becomes a successful small-time professional gambler, and all is well, until he falls for Clementine, a cocktail waitress and sometimes hooker.Written by

Gwyneth Paltrow co-starred with Samuel L. Jackson in this movie. Paltrow also co-starred with Robert De Niro in Great Expectations (1998). Jackson and De Niro co-starred in Jackie Brown (1997), so both actors have co-starred with Paltrow. See more »

Paul Thomas Anderson's first movie and wow what an entrance to make. Its refreshing to see a film maker making films with characters that you care about and fine dialogue. Why dont people talk in movies any more? If you think the same watch this film. This film is an absolute treat right from the opening scene, a true hidden gem which didnt even get a release in the UK!!! You will see some of the finest performances in film and be warned you will remember these characters for the rest of your life. 10/10 awsome!
