There's a lot missing in Molly's Game, especially regarding its protagonist's personal relationships. But what's there is dandy.

A dense, dynamic, compulsively entertaining affair, whose central role makes stunning use of Chastain's stratospheric talent.

Sorkin has made a canny, disjointed thriller of process and exposition, a sort of Goodfellas riff with a nerdy twist.

The experience of watching Molly's Game feels a bit like hearing a long, rambling story from someone high on something, a frantic, exhausting splurge of information that never truly justifies its existence.

If you enjoyed The Social Network or Steve Jobs, with their psychological insights, compelling characters, clever soundtrack choices and non-sequitur asides, then you'll love this.

There’s nothing so enticing as being allowed a glimpse into a hidden world of power and privilege, and Molly’s world is certainly that…

Sorkin approaches his directorial debut confidently and, thankfully, with ambition, juggling complex exposition with an exciting visual style. Molly's Game is highly entertaining and positively delightful watch.

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and enjoy films like Blow, Molly's Game is right up your alley. I found myself thinking about the film for a few days afterward -- usually a good sign.

Fast paced, hectic, messy - I had a ball. Script is clever, performances are solid. Recommended.
