The Big Gamble -Exploring the cinematic world of the gambler, from Bob Le Flambeur to Uncut Gems

On this week’s episode, Carsten and Stephen take a look at some classic and lesser-known film about the twilight world of the inveterate gambler, spurred on by the recent addition of a collection of films on the subject on the Criterion Channel, but taking a few side bets along the way, from the Parisien class of Melville’s Bob le Flambeur (and it’s sun drenched Neil Jordan remake The Good Thief) to the urban anxiety of The Gambler (both versions) and Uncut Gems.
