“Dealt” deals with a card player having gone blind. It’s a rather impressive documentary that shows how you can overcome anything. But, the DVD is far more impressive. All of the material treats the card playing and visual impairments as equals. This might be the first IFC disc that I’ve seen with a Descriptive Audio service. Listening to the track describe up-close card magic has to be heard to be believed. But, I’ll let you discover that one for yourself.
Honestly, I’m shocked that this movie didn’t come across my desk last fall. While it doesn’t scratch my personal itches, it’s a fascinating documentary that feels like it went largely unseen. Make that change, people.
