Voted one of the year’s ten best by The New York Times and Nominated for nine Academy Awards®*, The Hustler is a dazzling cinematic triumph.

TIME Magazine | August 03, 2008

Newman is better than usual; Gleason, as the slit-mouthed, beady-eyed Minnesota Fats, darts among the shabby little pool sharks like an improbably agile and natty whale; and Gambler Scott looks as though he could sell hot-air heat to the devil.

Derek Adams Time Out | June 24, 2006

A wonderful hymn to the last true era when men of substance played pool with a vengeance.

Bosley Crowther New York Times | May 20, 2003

Under Robert Rossen's strong direction, its ruthless and odorous account of one young hustler's eventual emancipation is positive and alive.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | September 26, 2002

One of the most compelling character-based films to emerge from the decade of the 1960s.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | July 11, 2002

The Hustler is one of those films where scenes have such psychic weight that they grow in our memories.

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | January 01, 2000

This picture is so much better than Martin Scorsese's belated sequel The Color of Money that they don't even belong in the same category.
