I have loved the movie Revolver and I cannot control my urge of fully understand it. From what I could make out of the movie, it is purely an analogy to chess. The characters of the movie are all pieces of the chessboard.

So who is Mr. Gold? Please give valid explanations to your theory!

From the wikipedia page on the movie:


Sam Gold is seen to be the 'king' in this chess game of gang warfare. He is the ultimate figure that all men are supposedly aspiring to be. Sam Gold is revealed to be an ultimately powerless cipher, whose power is granted only by those who invest in him. He represents ego and self-investment. He is the personification of greed
