Goofs

When Natalie Tate pays a visit to Cray at his home, she shows him key that she used to let herself in through the security door, presumably from when she lived with Cray. The key she shows him is clearly a square shaped key but when she places the same key down at the bar, it is definitely a different key. See more »

Quotes

Clifford Fowler: Did I? Damn. Can sure turn a phrase, can't he?
Cray: I thought about that for a long time.
Clifford Fowler: I'll drink to that.

Just a great, great film. Under appreciated...
21 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite films. Why oh why did they issue the DVD in 1:33? This is a wonderful example of a "southern" film based on southern films, not reality or even great southern novels. Without "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "The Long Hot Summer", and numerous other Tennessee Williams / Faulkner inspired films this film would have been impossible. That said, it is a delicious brew of southern Gothic types and situations. One must not forget that it was produced and directed by Mark Frost, David Lynch's partner in "Twin Peaks", and at the end the film really veers off into a similarly illogical, but highly sensual climax. The actors are just sensational, especially Joanne Whalley, and the location shooting is wonderful. Viewers should expect Tennessee Williams channeling David Lynch. The Carter Burwell score is fantastic. Great, great stuff!
