Aro Favourite Music of Chance, The


USA 1993, 98 minutes
Dir. Philip Haas
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Suspense/Crime / Fantasy, Independent

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: Impressively cast against type, James Spader's slimy card shark entices broken family man Mandy Patinkin to accept a poker challenge by two eccentric millionaires. Based on a novella by Paul Auster (SMOKE), this bizarre moral allegory about greed and honour owes a debt to the likes of Roald Dahl. A cruelly funny tale of the unexpected indeed. Also stars Charles Durning and M. Emmet Walsh.
