Storyline

Kaufman's Game follows Stanley, a driven young man with a passion for boxing, who is keen to improve his strength and stamina. When a shady stranger approaches him outside the gym with the offer of a specially produced steroid, Stanley is drawn into the ever more violent operations of a powerful organization, unwittingly entering into a series of tests designed to prove his mettle. This is a film about power, determination and being your own worst enemy. It celebrates the archetypes of classic Film Noir, and the dark, conspiratorial storytelling technique of Franz Kafka, but with a contemporary minimalist aesthetic.

Pointless
8 January 2018 | by mallaverackSee all my reviews

I notice I am the first to review this movie. I could not recommend it to anybody as it is so inane that the award of one star should be considered generous. Plausibility is thrown out the window when a would-be boxer accepts anabolic steroids from a complete stranger, in return it seems at first, for nothing. The so called plot then moves at a snail's pace, quite often without a script This review contains no spoilers because I do not know how it ended even though I watched the full movie! I'm sorry that I cannot provide something positive about a film in which there are no sympathetic characters, the script rarely propels any plot, incidents revealed are quite implausible...but the music was good in parts.
