Poker Reality Movie Now on DVD

Poker seems to be the flavor of the month… Looks like this movie was made in 1999 and they’re just wanting to cash in on the hotness of poker. IMDB rates it a 7.7, but there’s only 7 votes, so that’s not really saying much.

“The Big Blind,” the world’s first reality-based poker movie, is now available on DVD through internet sale — a distribution system as unique as the film’s financing, production and storyline — the film is funded by winnings of the its writer/director and executive producer, and tells its tale through vignettes based on real poker players.

“The Big Blind” is available for purchase over www.thebigblind.com. The site also provides a synopsis of the film as well as reviews from what would seem to be unlikely sources — championship poker players and columnists of card and gaming magazines rather than entertainment writers.

“I was amazed that someone has finally made a really, really accurate film about us. It was funny, entertaining and most of all accurate,” said Phil Hellmuth, a nine-time World Series of Poker champion. Hellmuth’s review was typical of the accolades directed to “The Big Blind.”
