Despite being in the business for years this 1998 film pretty much marks the introduction of Clive Owen to the audiences on North America. It's a dark bit o' British work depicting Owen as a wannabe novelist who runs a roulette wheel to make ends meet and winds up going off of the rails. Put this one next to THE INTERNATION (without all of the running) and you'll see what I mean about him needing to take a break. It's a slow film but very authentic and is one of those you'll either love or hate. Love for Rhona Mitra in a "high" profile bit part.
