When Monty and Naturelle meet for the first time in the movie she's leaning forward to pet the dog, who's standing in front of her. In the next shot the dog is behind her back and Monty has to raise his hand holding a dog's leash over Naturelle's head to let her pass through. See more »
This movie is excellent. Not a big fan of Spike Lee, but was interested in seeing his first "white" movie. Not racist, but that is how i saw it. His first movie that was with mostly white actors. I loved the movie. I have much more respect for Mr. Lee. I love the f-uc you scene. That is the best part of the movie. The theme of him escaping from this torture that he is about to go through also moved me. Very sad, but very real and moving movie. Drug laws in this country are far too restrictive and they ruin (usually minorities') lives. Great job, Spike Lee!! I loved Barry Pepper as the Stock Broker. I loved Ed Norton. He is always great, and this performance is no different..
