California Split

Regent Square Theater

Sun, September 21

This rarely shown dark comedy from Robert Altman explores the world of compulsive gambling and the search for that ever-elusive big score. Soon-to-be-unemployed Bill (George Segal) joins pal Charlie (Elliott Gould), as they move from bets on horses, to backroom card games, boxing, basketball and more. Roger Ebert said, "This movie has a taste in its mouth like stale air-conditioning, and no matter what time it seems to be, it's always five in the morning in a second-rate casino." (Robert Altman; 1974; 108 min, 35mm print)
