6:00 at Film Society of Lincoln Center [Program & Tix]

THE GAMBLER
Reisz | 1974 | US | 111m
*Q&A with James Toback
“Hollywood’s Jew Wave”
6:00 at FSLC

The Gambler was based on Toback’s own life as a reckless gambler on the point spread. It was a dreadful moment to watch on the screen: Mr. Caan, Toback’s alterego, bowing his head in shame from the sorrowful scorn heaped upon him by his mother. There was something undeniably original and unsettling about all of Toback’s self-hatred turned inward. His work was too personal for my taste, and yet I could never stay away from it.”
