Abstract: House of Games (1987, USA) by David Mamet Main Cast: Lindsay Course Company: MGM The film is about Margaret a successful psychiatrist. She wants to help a client and goes to “house of games” where she nearly gets fooled. She then starts to follow Mike, the leader of a trick gangster gang. They fool her and get about 80000$ from her. In the end she kills Mike for revenge. Scene: gambling male adults cards tobacco Transgressive in company psychological distress 17:16-21:43 In that scene she is assisting Mike to realize when the opponent is bluffing. She is the only woman on the poker table. The place is the typical place for gambling. Only one lamp is lighting the scenery. The table is covered green. Steam is lying in the air. Nearly everybody smokes. After a while Mike is getting very angry at his opponent. Discussion: As this scene is very typical for gambling I would expect, that the reaction will be more negative. They are playing for a lot of money, just for fun. On the other side the scene could also lead to laughter as it is that very typical. Clip: 39 (Addictions 5)
