An overstructured, overacted indie drama about gambling, addiction, and the sawdusty romanticism of old-time magicians. Name-brand actors (like Forest Whitaker, Kim Basinger, and Danny DeVito) play showily eccentric characters who probably seemed cool in the script.
Genre: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito, Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker; Director: Mark Rydell; Author: Robert Tannen; Runtime (in minutes): 108; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Yari Film Group
