Jack Pappas has worked hard to separate himself from his troublesome past. Content to hustle pool for a living, Jack tries to get by without making any waves. It appears he just about has it all figured out, until Sara, an ex flame of his comes back into his life unexpectedly looking for help. Suddenly, Jack finds himself drawn back into a past he'd tried to escape...and hoped to forget. But everything is not as it seems as Old Hollywood meets the modern era in this feature-length piece of contemporary nor.Written by

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.
