John has lost all his money. He sits outside a diner in the desert when Sydney happens along, buys him coffee, then takes him to Reno and shows him how to get a free room without losing much money. Under Sydney's fatherly tutelage, John becomes a successful small-time professional gambler, and all is well, until he falls for Clementine, a cocktail waitress and sometimes hooker. Paul Thomas Anderson's directorial debut.


When good luck is a long shot, you have to hedge your bets.


Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
