Nina Menkes – Queen of Diamonds (1991)

Filmed on location in Las Vegas, QUEEN revolves around the life of an alienated blackjack dealer. Starring Tinka Menkes as the intense, damaged dealer, the film was named one of the Year’s Ten Best by the Los Angeles Times and Film Comment.

“QUEEN OF DIAMONDS may become for America in the 90’s what JEANNE DIELMAN was for Europe in the 70’s—a cult classic using a rigorous visual composition to penetrate the innermost recesses of the soul.” –Berenice Reynaud

“QUEEN OF DIAMONDS, THE LATEST JEWEL IN THE CROWN OF INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER NINA MENKES, MAY BECOME FOR AMERICA IN THE ’90’S WHAT JEANNE DIELMAN WAS FOR EUROPE IN THE 70’S–A CULT CLASSIC USING A RIGOROUS VISUAL COMPOSITION TO PENETRATE THE INNERMOST RECESSES OF THE SOUL.” —The Chicago Reader

“THE FILM’S POWER STEMS FROM THE PALPABLE AURA OF REPRESSED RAGE AND DESPAIR WHICH TINKA MENKES GIVES THE MAIN CHARACTER. HER PORTRAYAL IS SPHINX-LIKE, SLOW, WEIGHTED, LIKE A WOUNDED BUT STILL DANGEROUS ANIMAL. ONE OF THE THREE BEST FILMS AT SUNDANCE.”
Atlanta Art Papers

“TAXING, SHIMMERING, HYPNOTIC, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS DEMANDS BEING SEEN MORE THAN ONCE TO FULLY ABSORB ITS BEAUTY AND MEANING-ONE OF THE YEAR’S TOP TWO FILMS.”
Los Angeles Times
