In the end credits there is a special thanks to Harvey Keitel. He was not involved in the movie as such, but he made a very important phone call to Tim Roth. Roth had been offered a big and well paid part in a big budget film immediately before this low budget independent film was to begin shooting. Harvey Keitel made a phone call to Roth, giving him the following advice "Don't take the money. Take the film you really want to make". So Roth stayed with this project. See more »

Like American Beauty this movie reveals the lives of many people in our
society although just a movie like the afore mentioned film it is closer
the truth than many wish to talk about...lost souls ...lost
It's funny yet depressing but with a possible positive future for the
characters. The ending leaves you on a cliff looking for the answers to
mess created by the characters actions .Tim Roth is a true genius hence
Lucky Numbers (excellent) and Pheobe Kates plays the part oh so well not
mention being her sexy self.
This is Drama but provides escapism though the sad and sometimes pathetic
lives of others
