Whenever you feel like watching a billiards movie, you should check this list made by Jason Moss. His blog ‘8 Ball on the Silver Screen’ is exclusively about billiards movies, billiards TV shows, billiards short films, and billiards web series and he has put in a lot of effort to create a comprehensive list for us Poolheads.

There seem to be way more billiards movies than I knew of. I knew that there were more than just ‘The Hustler‘, ‘The Color of Money‘, and ‘Poolhall Junkies‘, but not that there were so many. There’s even one, ‘Kiss shot‘, starring the lovely Whoopi Goldberg!

We also have ‘The Baltimore Bullet‘. It’s an entertaining movie starring James Coburn and Omar Sharif. The fun thing about this movie is that there are some small roles for real pool legends such as Willie Mosconi as a sports commentator, Steve Mizerak, Lou “the Machine Gun” Boutera, Allen Hopkins, Irving Crane, Ray Martin, Mike Sigel,  and Jimmy “Pretty Boy Floyd” Mataya.

Scan through the list, make a choice, and enjoy your billiards movie night!

About Pepijn de Wit

An adventurous pool player from the Netherlands who’s a croupier and curious cultural anthropologist in need of knowledge to understand the world around him, goes by the name Pepijn de Wit. He values experiences more than anything and wants to see, and learn as much of the world as possible before leaving it. Hustling, the most charming and dark element of pool, would therefore not be his trade, although it would make it easier for him to stop mind-traveling while surfing the internet. He applauds cultural diversity, the ambitious, the graceful, and the open-minded. His ambitions are big, his dreams even bigger. He’s a One Pocket lover, tournament director of the One Pocket Series, and pushes for One Pocket to take over and electrify Europe!
