The writer/director with this picture would only be discovered by people is he went broke and pulled over a liquor store. The cast will be the Blacksheep squadron of the movie world. An A list of nobodies. The most known celebrity in this effort also appeared in obscure reality tv program, Joe Schmo. A reasonable conclusion is that the video should only be broadcast o-n Mystery Science Theater 3000 or late at night when nobody is conscious, or sober, In case you were only given this information about the film. Oddly enough nevertheless, this film works.

What many people don't know about writer/director, David James, is the fact that he's, in the truest sense of the word, a real rounder. He's a coinsurer of the ring game, though he is visible, year in and year out, like a remora hangs onto a shark hanging around World Series of Poker events. This love of the game combined with his information and history gives the film a reality that's rare in poker films.

Unlike Rounders which follows a linear tale line, The Big Blind has more of the Pulp Fiction feel to it. There are story-lines and numerous plots which center round the Lake Elsinore casino. David suitably interlocks these vignettes to produce a great cinematic tapestry about the incidents in and across the poker world.

The sport it self includes a wide variety of personalities and people. This lovely advertisers portfolio has various salient warnings for the purpose of it. This truth is maybe not lost in the movie. As opposed to zeroing in using one stereotype, David James creates lots of various personalities. Undoubtedly art resembling actual life.

If your enjoyment of poker is not limited to the sport it self, however the atmosphere too, you'll enjoy The Big Blind. The gritty realism that is displayed in this film leaves you with the impression that the events could possibly be happening at your favorite casino at any moment. If you're trying to find star power though, I recommend you get rent some quality movie like Gigli.
