Watch The Color of Money (1986) - Alternative Versions.
People misunderstood "The Color of Money," I think. There are a few
things to keep in mind:
1) This was a Martin Scorsese film. Scorsese was fresh off "Taxi
Driver," "Raging Bull," and other such successes from less than a
decade before. People were expecting a lot.
2) It starred Paul Newman, returning to his character from "The
Hustler," in a sequel that was twenty-five years in the making. That's
longer than the wait for the "Phantom Menace" prequel.
Perhaps for those two (very strong) reasons alone, when "The Color of
Money" opened in 1986, the critics and audiences didn't think much of
it. It garnered decent praise from both areas but most critics seemed
to agree: it didn't hold a candle to "The Hustler," and anyone other
than Scorsese could have easily made the same picture.
After 19 years, I disagree. I think "The Color of Money" is not only an
intelligent and amusing character piece, but an excellent continuation
of a character we haven't seen for 25 years.
First of all, Scorsese's direction isn't his best, but it's still very
good. And he's definitely got the same elements going on as "After
Hours" from a few years before -- his cinematography is identical and
the dark colors and grainy '80s vibe are present in every frame.
Likewise he's using the quick-cuts and zooms and iconic panning shots
that he's known for. The thing is, Scorsese's styles just changed a bit
during the 1980s (they even carried on into "GoodFellas" -- the
night-time shots carry the same foreboding look as "After Hours" and
"Color of Money"). I think now, looking back, since we've seen more of
Scorsese's films, it's easier to notice that this is indeed a Martin
Scorsese film. A man who is constantly changing his directorial
approach. (Just look at "The Aviator" for goodness sake!) Newman
deserved the Oscar more for "The Hustler," of course, but for what it's
worth, Fast Eddie Felson's evolution is handled with care in the script
and it's very entertaining (for anyone who's seen the original) to note
the change in his behavior. It's also interesting to see the new cocky
pool hustler, Vince (Tom Cruise), filling in the shoes of Eddie from a
few decades before.
If "The Hustler" was a great insight into the life of a troubled young
man, then "The Color of Money" is a terrific insight into the evolution
of this man, and the contrast between the young and the old. All adults
tell us as children that they were just like us at one time, and we
don't believe them. "The Color of Money" follows this principal -- in
thirty years, we all know Vince will be just like Fast Eddie: wise and
matured. And then he'll probably be coaching a young guy who thinks
he's the king of the world. Will they make another sequel based on this
continuation of the story? I doubt it. It's unnecessary, because as far
as I'm concerned "The Color of Money" has already stressed the point.
But you never know...
Overall this isn't a great movie and I won't pretend it is. But I do
think it's one of the better films to come out of the 1980s and had a
lot more going for it than some of the critics gave it credit for. Film
buffs should see it, especially those who loved "The Hustler."
