Fast eddie felson is perhaps the most talented pool shooter in the country and yet, at his core, he’s a born loser. He is the ruler of a shabby kingdom, and at the end of the film, as eddie and bert have their merciless confrontation, he sits passive in the middle of the floor, listening to what he has heard countless times before, knowing that to practice his gift he has to accept this world.
