Surprisingly good indie film
12 October 2015 | by tiffharmon-49919See all my reviews

I went into Masse with reasonable expectations and I was pleasantly surprised. The story took a little while to grab me, but once it did I was totally hooked. It had kept me guessing until the final scene which has it's share of twists itself.

Being a pool player I enjoyed the hustling scenes. At times it definitely pays homage to the Hustler, and to a lesser extent the color of Money. Jack, the main character, was only ever really comfortable around the pool table. While not a full on action film, the fight scenes were better than your typical indie fare. One scene in particular that took place in a basement around a pool table was a stand out.

There is a fairly graphic sex scene that contains extended nudity. While it does serve the story it may be a bit much for some people.

All in all a very enjoyable piece.
