The Cooler (2003)

William H. Macy is the definition of “cool”. This film has an interesting mix of comedy, drama and romance. This also might be one of Alec Baldwin’s best movies. He does a great job as the heartless (and yet at times scarily loyal) Casino owner. This film has a lot more violence than I was expecting and sexual themes too (don’t watch this with your Grandma). It isn’t always fun to watch but when it ramps up you’ll enjoy it. William H. Macy and Maria Bello have great chemistry and she ends up being a very lovable character, despite her shortcomings as a person. If you like movies about gambling I think you’ll like this, if you don’t care for it I would skip it.

78/100
