Default House of Games (Criterion) - HDD Review

David Mamet moves from Pulitzer Award-winning playwright to feature filmmaker with House of Games. A Con-man thriller starring Lindsay Crouse as a struggling psychiatrist and Joe Mantegna as the cardsharp who seduces her. This is an all-dialogue sort of action thriller where a simple turn of phrase gives away a big tell in the plot. This is a slick potboiler that percolates right to the explosive end. The Criterion Collection delivers House of Games to Blu-ray with a new HD transfer and a crisp, clean audio mix along with a fine set of bonus features. If you're a Mamet fan, this isn't one to let slip past your radar. Highly Recommended.
