Goofs

Approximately 71 minutes into the movie, when Heir Bruckner (Warren Clarke) is driving his daughter, Christa (Amanda Pays), home after picking her up from Nazi Headquarters, they are obviously in a British car. Heir Bruckner is driving from the right-hand side of the car, not the left-hand side as it would be in Germany. See more »

Every Which Way
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Incredibly bleak and almost unwatchable. One of the rules of a good film is to create a world that is accessible. I get the main character's slipping in and out of the current reality. The problem is that things are so bleak in the contemporary that the past seems not so terrible. There is all this angst and anger. I thought to myself, this girl should be sent packing. She is the consummate brat. He father is pleasant to her, but because of the death of her mother, she resents him horribly. That said, he is about as dense as one can be. At one time, he is scolding her for smoking a cigarette; the next he is forgiving of the most outlandish behavior. I know he has no knowledge of the flipping in and out but that's an unfair part of this film as well. It's confusing because the central figure acquires new personalities as she shifts in and out of the past; but why? Isn't she really the same person and if she isn't, how does she keep a grip on reality in each place (an memory for that matter). I don't think I could watch it a second time.
