The Color of Money
Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1986, 119 mins. 35mm. With Tom Cruise, Paul Newman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, John Turturro. In an Academy Award-winning performance, Paul Newman reprises his role from The Hustler as Fast Eddie Felson, 25 years later and retired. He takes a brash young talent under his wings, but egos clash and the men part ways. Ultimately, Felson is lured back to confront his protégé and the demons that have long haunted him.
