Films from a Pool Hall


Walking up a flight of dingy stairs to smoke filled room that smell like stale beer and old cigarettes, with the sound of balls smashing into one another, a grunt for a missed shot, Bang Bang Band! “8 ball in the corner pocket!” Everyone is clapping their hands, no one should’ve made that shot. Smash! A pool cue gets slammed over the shooters back. Capturing the tension of a Pool Hall on film.

Quote

Johnny Doyle: The poolhall's a great equalizer. In the poolhall, nobody cares how old you are, how young you are, what color your skin is or how much money you've got in your pocket... It's about how you move. And I remember this kid once who could move around a pool table like nobody had ever seen. I mean, hour after hour, rack after rack, his shots just went in. The cue was part of his arm and the balls had eyes. And the thing that made him so good was... He thought he could never miss. I know, 'cause that kid was me.
