Welcome to the Billiard Forum's Listing of Billiard Movies; A growing collection of cue-sport movies focused on snooker, billiards, and other table games.
Billiards Forum has created a listing of billiard movies for your enjoyment. We started with an overview of the upcoming film "9-Ball" with Jennifer Barretta, and will add more throughout the upcoming weeks.
The color of money is another really good pool movie.

The Hustler (1961) is the best billiard movie ever made ( starring Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson), and The Color of Money (1986) is the sequel of The Hustler (directed by Martin Scorsese, and for his role in this movie, Paul Newman won Oscar for the Best Actor in a Leading Role.)

Back in late 80s i watched some b-movie about billiard on video tape. Deadly billard or something can't remeber the name. The plot is about billard player in post apocaliptic world who plays for money. By the way game is played with smal black box positioned in the middle of the pool table , and if you knock it with ball they cut one of yours fingers...However main character plays "the game of live" with some local mob, and he can win lot of money but he must knock down that black box to win. I really loved that movie because of atmosphere...Still looking for its name...

I think the movie you're talking about is Hard Knuckle? Plot: In a post-apocalyptic wilderness world of drugs, lawlessness and corrupt poolhalls, a maverick pool-player (Bisby) challenges the reigning champion at the "knuckle table" where losers sacrifice their fingers
