California Split

Great film by THE Robert Altman!

 As always, Vincent Canby is on the spot: “The compulsive gambler will put up with any loss or indignity in the hope of recouping later, thus placing a terrible burden on the future. For once he does win, everything is over.”

Senses of cinema has a decent article on this film that digresses more than addresses.
