The Gambler (2013)

Gruesomely morbid and twisted topic for a film. Didn’t quite work all the time, but it certainly made an impression.  Personally I would have made it even darker, and fleshed out more of the supporting characters to make them the eventual greed over friendship aspect more powerful, and tighten up certain plot points to make it better paced and intense. I could easily see someone doing an American remake of this in a few years, it’s a concept that would lend itself to a bigger budget film. The movie getting selected as the Lithuanian entry for the 2015 Oscars certainly should give it enough notice in the right circles for somebody to buy the rights.
