Movie Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertWhat Altman comes up with is sometimes almost a documentary feel; at the end of California Split we know something about organized gambling in this country we didn't know before.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Alan ScherstuhlCalifornia Split has never been heralded as one of the key Altmans. But the few things it does - friendship and disappointment and the drab and desperate thrill of the gambler's life - it does superbly.
CinePassion - 8/10 by Fernando F. CroceNothing enhances Altman's visual-aural density like the bustle of poker circles, race tracks, boxing rings
Variety - 8/10 by Variety StaffThe film is technically and physically handsome, all the more so for being mostly location work, but lacks a cohesive and reinforced sense of story direction.
Time Out - 8/10 by Joshua RothkopfAltman feels rather than thinks his way into a subject, with a special interest in how people relate to one another in moments of crisis.
User Review - 10/10 by Michael LMeanders in a good way with no real plot to speak of. Watch Elliott Gould and George Segal discover friendship through their shared addiction...gambling. A lot of 70's cool and overlapping dialogue a la Altman. This film was going to be made by Spielberg but he passed. This is one of those films I would want if I were stranded on a desert island.
User Review - 10/10 by Tom Bsome guy named Spielberg was developing this to be his first feature. he dropped it and it felt into Altman's lap. Gould, Segal and the underappreciated Gwen Welles (also in Nashvilled) are amazing. one of the great "buddy films" of the 1970s and one of a string of genius flix Altman reeled off in a row from '71 thru '76. thanx Stevie S. for dropping the ball. life's a gamble, as the late Bob altman knew. and this lucky 7 felt right into that dead man's hands...
User Review - 10/10 by Michael SLike all of Altman, its about something else - and its a wild ride through addiction with this little-seen 1974 excursion. Two unforgettable guys, two prostitues with hearts of gold and a plethora of background stories make up the tapestry here but were left with a hollow feeling come the fianle as we come to realize we've witnessed a true 'rock bottom' moment for one of our characters. More powerful than most Intervention episodes I've seen...
User Review - 10/10 by Jordan MOne of my all time favorites. I put it on and it makes me feel like I'm seeing old friends for the first time in years. It's like hanging out with the two coolest people on the planet for 2 hours except they are also horrendous screw-ups. So like you don't actually have to like...bail them out of jail or anything.
User Review - 10/10 by Wesley BAn uncanny film with stellar performances from George Segal and Elliott Gould. If you want a gambling movie, this one is the best, bar none. This film could make Madonna give birth to cellulite, that's how fucking good it is.
