Audience Reviews for Lesser Prophets (The Last Bet)

I found this film in the bargain bin. It?s UK title was The Last Bet. It?s actually quite a good and quirky gangster film. The cast is superb, and the balance of serious drama and comedy is brilliant, but for me the best thing about this movie is the script. Worth checking out, and certainly worth more than the 1 I bought it for!
