Chalk has unusual visual vitality in a John Cassavetes vein. For the adventurous, it's worth checking out.

[Suffers] from excessive sentimentality and the film finally fails to escape the conventions of the Hollywood cinema it so proudly deplores.

Top Critic

An impressive low-whistle, hardscrabble look at the world of pool sharks and the people who crisscross their lives.

In Chalk, the writing is all on the wall, but its outline can only be seen in artful smudges.
