Quotes

The Girl: Do you have a mistress?
Bill: No. Too much time, too demanding - a lot of work keeping it a secret, you know. Rides, and motel rooms...
The Girl: How do you like your meat? Don't tell me - medium.
Bill: While all that energy could be better put to use by expanding profits, getting ahead... instead of laid and alone. You're always alone afterwards, you know? Try to put something of yourself into it. But afterwards, lying there, it all seems so... fucking impersonal. What could be new? People have been doing it for ...

Very Black, Very Subversive Comedy
2 April 2005 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

BONE (3+ outta 5 stars) Very odd film that gets better and better the more times you see it. The plot sounds like an average thriller... but the movie is really a comedy... a very black, very subversive comedy. A well-to-do middle-aged couple (Andrew Duggan, Joyce Van Patten) have their bickering interrupted by a mysterious, threatening black man (Yaphet Kotto) who seems to come out of nowhere. He ransacks the house, looking for money. After coming up dry he sends the husband to the bank to withdraw some cash... if he doesn't come back in an hour he is going to rape the wife. Well, the husband takes the opportunity to run out on his wife and have a one night stand with a crazy woman he meets outside of the bank. The wife and her captor, in the meantime, actually begin to form a bond... and soon take off after the errant husband to seek their revenge. Or do they? Excellent performances and dialogue. I was a little taken aback by the movie the first time I saw it because I wasn't sure where it was going... so you'll need to keep an open mind to fully appreciate it. Why was Yaphet Kotto never a big movie star? He OWNS this movie! (Then again, he pretty well owns EVERY movie he appears in.) Classic opening dream sequence of Andrew Duggan selling used cars filled with gruesome accident victims!
