When Aaron and Lester break into the hotel room to find a dress for Aaron to wear in graduation, Lester picks the door lock with a single pocket knife. However no locks can be opened with a single instrument, he should have had at least a wrench too. See more »
Listen to me, Aaron. You're going to be okay, huh? You're a smart boy. You're very smart. I tell you how smart you are. Once, when you were less than a year old, your mother was in the sanitarium with consumption; and you would cry every night. So, the first few times, I picked you up and you stopped crying.

I first rented King Of The Hill (1993) back in 1994 and was delightfully surprised at the great quality of the film. First off I am not a fan of Steven Soderbergh and only slightly liked Sex Lies and Videotope. I always seem to rent and see his movies though, hoping that he could return to the form of moviemaking that made this movie. But apparently that is not the case. I don't know how he did it but this is a great film and should be seen by a large audiance. The acting, Writing, direction, and cinemetography are all top notch in this story about a boy making his way through the depression era 1930's. Jessie Bradford turns in an excellent performance as Aaron Kurlander the kid who has to keep his wits at all times. The casting of this film was excellent and even includes a great early performance by Adrien Brody who plays young Aaron's suregate big brother that lives down the hall. A true can't miss for anyone that likes fine cinema.
