Trivia:

For years had hoped to adapt several short stories by Northwest author, Raymond Carver, before Robert Altman beat him to the rights and made Short Cuts (1993). When Jost learned that Altman had set the stories in urban Los Angeles, instead of the rural Northwest, he was furious, and has refused to see the film. See more »
