The color of money.

was a nice film. The Hustler was even better which makes you wonder.. What are the chances the writer/director of this film never saw either?? I mean honestly, i would have some difficulty putting my name under a story like that and i do wonder how this guy did. Now as for the rest..lets just say the guy is no Scorsese and mcDonald ain't no Paul Newman either...
