  • A bookie (Danny Aiello) comes face to face with a rival of his past and stands by his never-run-from-a-bet persona even when the man has a hot winning streak

    9.6
    Very suspenseful, yet reflective. You begin to sympathize with Lacey when you learn that his downfall came by the hands of Vale. Although Vale seems like his apathy for Lacey and competitiveness runs hand in hand, the confrontation forces him to reflect on his life as he accepts that his time was up. Great story, killer mood
