The Color of Money (1986)

[Martin Scorsese film; Paul Newman, Tom Cruise, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio]

Pool hustler Fast Eddie Felson finds the young promising pool player Vincent in a local bar, and he sees in him a younger version of himself. To try and make it as in the old days, Eddie offers to teach Vincent how to be a hustler. After some hesitation, Vincent accepts, and Eddie takes him and Vincent's girlfriend Carmen on a tour through the country to work the pool halls. However, Vincent's tendency to show off his talent - and by doing so warning off the players and losing money - soon leads to a confrontation with Eddie.

At 54:50, the talented Vincent, played by Tom Cruise, shows off his cockiness with some celebratory pool cue stick manipulation for 20 seconds.
