16 Movies Like Croupier (1998)

Croupier is a British neo-noir movie that was released in 1998 and starring Clive Owen. Mike Hodges was the film’s director, and it was directed by him.

The positive reception that the movie received from critics served as a springboard for Owen’s acting career in North America, which helped get the actor’s career off the ground there. It makes use of interior monologues, much like the early noir detective films, which at the time were immensely popular.

Croupier was released on DVD in both Canada by Alliance Atlantis, and in the United States by Image Entertainment. Both companies contributed to the project. Due to fact that it had already been shown on Dutch television, it was disqualified from being considered for an Academy Award.
