The story is also not solid enough to hold it all together and its length further diminishes the audience interest in the film.
The film could sure have made a better impact if the treatment was well-thought-out. User Reviews.

Welcome 15 days ago Follow Very very nice. Guest 15 days ago Follow Excellent movie. And why should one deceive oneself? He is not the timid character that keeps everything inside. I mean, I am in love with those characters since they are a mirror to me and let me focus on the many things I need to change. But it is nice to see an energetic, outspoken character developing the quality that one longs for.
I lose all form Since I have no hope and am a zero in your eyes, I say outright: I see only you everywhere, and the rest makes no difference to me. One that brought to mind all the disgusting justifications that one encounters in life.

This book screams reality. The description of the casino, the kinds of gamblers, the desire to win, the abstraction from the world, the eyes fixed on a number, an excuse for every act, the brief sense of reason after a lost bet and the subsequent hunch that the next one will be the one that saves the day. I was as if in a fever and pushed this whole pile of money onto red—and suddenly came to my senses!
And for the only time that whole evening, in all that playing, fear sent a chill over me and came back as a trembling in my hands and legs. With terror I sensed and instantly realized what it meant for me now to lose!
Urban Dictionary: the gambler
My whole life was at stake! It is the impulse, the craving for risks. Despair that drives. Chance that sings. The feeling that one is in control of the roulette, of the next move; the elusive luck. Praises for the fearless gambler.

They can deny it. They can lie to themselves as they embrace victory, but deep down they are aware of their deteriorating state. Nothing could be more absurd than moral lessons at such a moment!

Jul 17, Lyn rated it liked it. Not one of his greater works, but one that reveals his adept ability at multi-layered characterization. The story behind the story is almost as interesting - he had to write this on a tight schedule because of his own gambling debts. Always an introspective narrator, with subtle empathy for an imperfect hero Raskolnikov Dostoyevsky here was able to describe the feelings, anxiety, and drives of a gambling addict.

Fyodor Dostoevsky is a phenomenal writer and an icon of Russian literature. In this story, he has once again written a novel comprised of superb prose, unique characters and some very insightful comments about the human condition.
For that, this novel deserves nothing less than 4 stars. HOWEVER , as a native of Las Vegas who has just recently been given the opportunity to read this book after the lifting of the year ban imposed by the State of Nevada on public dissemination of th 4. The book starts off great. Dostoevsky introduces us to the main character of his short novel, Alexei Ivanovich, and describes him as an intelligent tutor who is working for a Russian family whose patriarch is known as The General.
So far…so good. Alexei becomes involved in an extremely unhealthy relationship with Polina in which she is constantly berating him and compelling to take inappropriate actions.
