Hard Eight

I'm not sure how this film got on my DVD rental list, but I'm glad it did. Paul Thomas Anderson takes a protective old man, a hard luck guy and a desperate woman, and weaves them into a family. An old secret leads to violence and extortion. The script is sharp, and the cast works well. This is Anderson's first feature film, and a strong one at that.
