Color of money question - 03-18-2017, 12:42 PM

What's your take on Eddie losing to Amos (forest whiticre) did Eddie get hustled or did Eddie dump to lose Vince and the girl?

He got hustled. That was definitely not him dumping as shown by his break down afterwards

He was hustled.....which is why Eddie became angry with himself.
Eddie should have spotted the con since Vince & Eddie were hustlers.
More importantly, Eddie knew he was better than Amos but not at that moment.
So he re-commits to playing competitive, championship caliber pool & returns.

Broken thumbs and all......Eddie was a fierce competitor with tremendous pride.
He couldn't tolerate thinking that Vinnie laid down on their match or he was better.
The girl didn't matter to Eddie, except as a rudder to steer Vinnie in the right direction.
Only the actual story author would know but that's my take on the original question.

He was definitely hustled and pissed at himself for drinking too much. Love the line during that episode when Vince asks how he is doing and he says, "Holding my own and a little bit of theirs."

I don't know if "hustled" is the right word - but Amos whooped him. Vincent may have re-lit the fire in Eddie, but losing to Amos fanned the flames - and if you'll notice, right after that Eddie starts getting in shape (pool), and gets new glasses. He just couldn't stomach the loss. (To be honest - I'm a bit surprised we didn't see a rematch)

Eddie knew what Amos was all about - he had been there years before in "The Hustler". He (Eddie) just hated that he couldn't take him (Amos) down even though he knew what was going on.

Just IMO - I didn't write the book or screenplay.


Best always,
Ched

Unless you fell asleep at the end of that scene I think the rest of the film makes it pretty obvious.
