The Hustler The movie The Hustler caused me to think about how to set the priorities in my life to help me be a good individual In the movie this is shown when Eddie cannot stop gambling when he is up all that money and cannot face himself as a man to change his life style around He also cannot face the truth that he is in love with Sarah The moral issue of not knowing when enough is enough is clearing shown through Eddie gambling habits When Eddie is up 18000 on Minnesota Fats he has a chance to just pocket the money and make a good profit Eddie continues foolishly to push his luck and eventually winds up 2000 down to the Kentucky Derby man Addictions of any kind in your life can lead you to nothing but trouble Gambling is a very addicting problem that many people can suffer from Owing people money and other pay offs can lead you to put yourself in bad positions Eddie has his thumbs broken by men when he cannot sufficiently come up front with the money From my experiences from gambling with friends people get pissed off very easily over money no matter if the amount is large or small When you are trying to hustle people and you take that risk of losing you dont know what kind of people you are dealing with and could lead to more trouble When I gamble it is usually with my close friends or my family so I can assure myself of not taking a risk of hurting myself I have also been in card games at the caddy shack where people have gotten in debt a couple of hundred dollars and I have seen punches be thrown
