Day #21,479

Walk km 5932-5935: to Edgewater Casino

Movie #1416 (#218 this year): California Split(1974,Robert Altman)

I do not like the movies of Robert Altman. But since this one is about gambling, I figure I'd give it a shot. Hard to ruin a gambling movie. Robert sure gives it the old college try though.
What's with the sound levels? The background noise is way louder than the dialogue so that you can hardly hear anything that's being said. In fact, the climatic scene where George Segal says why winning has made him so depressed is totally missed - couldn't hear a word of what he said! It would appear that a lot of this stuff was improvised to give it a realistic feel. That may be some people's idea of a good movie (Altman is kinda popular) but it's just crap to me.
