Jani is down on her luck; under pressure from her creditors she approaches Jack, asking him to be the inside man for a planned heist at the casino.

Jack Manfield is a writer but an unpublished one thus far. With money running out he follows a connection from his father that earns him a job interview in a London casino.
After a short time he finds he has rediscovered the croupier bug and is back in love with his new job. He also finds that his experiences useful in creating a new book, lead the lead character, Jake, as a croupier.
Quite often it'll be the UK, European or underground markets that expose an American film as a good film after the US market has ignored it, but with Croupier it worked the other way round.
Hardly making any impact at all upon release in the UK, it was apparently good reviews and good figures from the US that helped make it better known.
However don't expect a great plot that piles twist on twist, because this isn't what the film is about. Rather the film relies very heavily on the observations of the croupier himself both as Jack and Jake to drive the film forward.
I can't think of another film that I've seen that uses voice-over to such a degree and makes it work , usually heavy voice-over use implies that the script and characters were not strong enough to hold the film up by themselves.
This is a weakness and it stops the film being as satisfying as it could have been, with Jack not being provided with enough of a plot to be set in.
That said it still works due to his character and some great direction from Hodges who avoids being overly flashy as the gambling world setting often encourages directors to be.
Even in voice-over he delivers good character and direction for the film. Kingston is not as good. Aside from doing her whole nudity thing yet again she also is lumbered with an accent that doesn't suit her and one that she doesn't sound comfortable with even if it isn't that bad.
But in a film that is more about the croupier than anything else, the film is Owen's and he rises to it and does well with the lead role. Overall this is an OK film and one that deserves better than it received upon first release in the UK.

His role here in Croupier, as the existential card dealer, is magnificent. Croupier is directed by Mike Hodges, who, like Guy Ritchie, typically stays in the same genre of film.
There is some fine direction here, and the cinematography is marvelous. Such smooth camera movement like I've never seen before. Certainly, Croupier is not a film for everyone.
It is a lot like another English film, Intermission, where the plot doesn't really take off until about any hour in, and that plot disappears within fifteen minutes.
What you have here is a fine, meandering character analysis. Normally, people would find that sort of film boring.
Who wants to watch a person live for a good hour and a half? But luckily for us, Croupier has a great lead character named Jack, and he is played to perfection by Clive Owen.
This character is so interesting. He's a lot like Ryan Gosling in Drive. He exists, and we're seeing him live his life, but he less of a person and more of a meaning.
He stands for something; maybe the good in the world. Such a disgrace that this film was disqualified for the Academy Awards.
If not for that, I feel like Owen wouldn't been nominated. His performance practically makes this film. Neo-noir is a genre that is rarely perfected, and while Croupier isn't quite perfect, it's definitely one of the best I've seen.
It makes for an immensely interesting watch. See all Audience reviews. Bella: Tits and a uniform.. View All Quotes. Best Horror Movies.
