California Split

Dir. Robert Altman. USA, 1974. 1h 48m. Starring Elliott Gould, George Segal, Ann Prentiss, Gwen Welles, Joseph Walsh, Bert Remsen, Barbara Ruick, Jeff Goldblum.

When a casual poker player befriends a professional one, they set out on a hedonistic gambling streak in search of the ever-elusive big payday. Elliott Gould is at his breezy best as a roving hustler in this languidly cynical comedy that riffs on post-1960s malaise and societal greed.

‘But what lingers after the film’s bittersweet conclusion are the melancholy details of people leading lonely lives of compulsion and loss, looking for sympathetic companions in order to feel less sick.’ Noel Murray, Vulture
