Bert: You got talent. There are only a handful of movie characters so real that the audience refers to them as touchstones. Fast Eddie Felson is one of them. The pool shark played by Paul Newman in "The Hustler" is indelible--given weight because the film is not about his victory in the final pool game, but about his defeat by pool, by life, and by his lack of character. This is one of the few American movies in which the hero wins by surrendering, by accepting reality instead of his dreams. Billiards is the arena for the movie's contests, but there is no attempt to follow the game shot by shot, or even to explain the rules.

Newman is a top-notch pool hustler who gets cocky and challenges Gleason's Minnesota Fats to the match of his life. The DVD debut of this landmark drama is exceptional. Besides a luminous widescreen transfer and picture-in-picture deconstruction of the pool shots by billiards master Mike Massey, the commentary track is unique--and we hope starts a new trend.
