Poolhall Junkies will never win any critical acclaim. that is of course if the critic doesn’t play pool. pool players will love seeing christopher walken making a real trick shot. they will love the fact that bronx tale star chazz palmentieri is the bad guy. they will love the back story of the writers meeting by chance in a pool hall trying to hustle each other.
this movie is directed by Mars Callahan and you can tell he loves pool. since all pool players love “the huslter” and “color of money” you can see bits and pieces of each.
