When you think of gambling movies, what comes to mind? Martin Scorsese's Casino, probably. Uncut Gems is a recent one, so that probably pops up, too. Bugsy, The Sting, and Ocean's Eleven are other obvious titles. These are the classics, the ones that have been widely seen and are highly regarded. You really can't go wrong with any of them.
If you've seen all of those and are looking for something you haven't seen, the following underrated gambling movies fit the bill nicely. Despite having big stars and, in several instances, A-list directors, these films somehow didn't catch on in quite the same way. A few didn't get very wide releases, whereas others simply flew under the radar. Three or four of the titles have cult followings, yet remain relatively unknown to the public at large. What they all have in common - whether comedies or dramas - is insight into the gambling phenomenon.
