Trivia

The house where Billy Brown's parents live in the film is the very same house where Vincent Gallo lived with his parents growing up.
Christina Ricci choreographed her tap dance in the bowling alley scene.
Of the $1.5 million budget, $20,000 was spent on Anjelica Huston's wig alone.
The song Billy's father sings to Layla, "Fools Rush In Where Angels Fear To Tread", was actually sung by Vincent Gallo's father, Vincent Gallo Sr.
Kevin Corrigan originally turned down the role of Goon because he was uncomfortable with it. He later changed his mind and asked for the role back. Gallo had hired another actor to play the role but fired him and re-hired Corrigan. After filming, Corrigan was still uncomfortable with his performance and asked to be uncredited.
Christina Ricci and Lance Acord both had difficult working relationships with Vincent Gallo resulting in Gallo publicly disparaging them after the film's release, calling Ricci a "puppet" and overweight and Acord a "button pusher".
Ben Gazzara ad-libbed the part where he shoves his face between Christina Ricci's breasts at the dinner table.

The dinner scene with Billy's parents pays homage to the static visual style of Japanese director Yasujirô Ozu, who is referred to by the OZU on the license plate of Layla's car.
Gallo decided to shoot on reversal stock (the equivalent of color transparency film - expensive both to buy and process), without even knowing if the stock was available in 35mm or if any labs were capable of developing it.
Original cinematographer Dick Pope was fired during preproduction for opposing Gallo's decision to shoot on reversal film. Gallo intended to act as cinematographer himself but the bond company insuring the film would not allow it. Gallo then hired Lance Acord, who was at the time a non-union cinematographer who had never shot a feature.
