Experience legendary actor Paul Newman in the role that earned him an Academy Award(R) (Best Actor, 1986, THE COLOR OF MONEY). Newman joins Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE -- GHOST PROTOCOL) in Academy Award-winning Martin Scorsese's (Best Director, 2006, THE DEPARTED) brilliant and powerful drama, THE COLOR OF MONEY -- now available for the first time on Blu-ray with an astonishing digital transfer. Revisiting one of his most memorable roles, Newman stars as Fast Eddie Felson from THE HUSTLER. Eddie forms a profitable alliance with the flashy and talented young pool shark Vince (Cruise), but all bets are off when Vince's arrogance costs them more than just a few matches. Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this dazzling classic -- now better than ever on Blu-ray!
Martin Scorsese handles directing duties in this 1986 sequel to the classic 1961 film The Hustler, which marks the return of Paul Newman to the role of pool shark Fast Eddie Felson. Anxious to break into the big time again, Eddie finds a talented protégé (Tom Cruise) to groom; but with the addition of the latter's manipulative girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) and the wild streak in Cruise's character, the trio make for a fascinating portrait in group psychology. The cast is brilliant, the script by Richard Price (Clockers) is a paragon of tightly controlled character study and drama (at least in the film's first half), and Scorsese and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus make an ornate show of the collision and flight of pool balls through space--something of a metaphor for the dynamics among the three principals. The film is generally regarded as weaker in its second half, and rightly so, as everything that was interesting in the first place disappears. Still, Newman won a deserved Oscar for his performance. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A classic, do not miss. The combination of a young Cruise and experienced Newman does wonder for the story. A must see.Published on May 10 2012 by ET
