Trivia

Writer David Benioff said in a BBC interview, "The first time I saw [Edward Norton] on set he pulled back his hair and showed me his widow's peak. In the book, Monty Brogan has a widow's peak, but I hadn't mentioned it in the script. But Edward so wanted to be in character that he wore a prosthetic widow's peak for the entire shoot."

User Reviews

 
Overrated
25 May 2003 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Norton's excellent (as usual) and Hoffmann's character is moving and well-acted. The best part is the description of a disenchanted New York, under the spell of September 11, populated by people who seem, more than everything, lost and confused.

Despite that, overall it's a shallow film. What do we learn about its characters, their motivations, their aspirations? Not much. The final part with Brian Cox imagining how Ed Norton's life would be if he tried to escape is, in my opinion, very trite and rhetorical.

6/10
