Rachel Pullen, UK Film Review
"Walsh, fresh from the swimming pool, dripping in gangster coolness, gives us his latest short film Aces, the story of a group of friends who decided to play a not so friendly game of poker, and by not so friendly I mean they are playing with real money, I play with Pogs from the 90’s, which probably are worth more than money nowadays...well maybe.
We see this game almost from the perspective of one of the players, a shadowy figure we never really get a good shot of, he takes his time, absorbing the people around him, listening intently to conversations, learning about his rivals, but he himself, never says a word, and we ourselves are allowed front row seats to the action."
