In the scene in which Naturelle tends to Monty's facial wounds, Naturelle is wearing a sweatshirt which reads "COVENTRY" (the prep school from which Monty was expelled). Near the end of the scene, Naturelle steps into the kitchen to fill a plastic bag with ice. As she enters the kitchen, her sweatshirt suddenly has two letters reversed. It reads "COVETNRY."

Monty Brogan: Look at this. He's alive.
Kostya Novotny: This dog, how you call it? Bull pit?
Monty Brogan: No, Pit-Bull. But that's not a pit bull. I don't know, I don't know what he is. I bet he lost somebody some money though. Give me your gun.
Kostya Novotny: Shooting him?

A movie about so many things, they add up to nothing.
16 April 2003 | by (Ghent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is about so many things (or at least it tries to be), that it utterly fails. It's about remorse, paranoia, lust, greed, fear, racism, terrorism, ... but all in a belittling and moralising way. There are a few good scenes in it, but what's with all the WTC stuff? I guess I don't get it because I'm not a New Yorker (and not an American), but when they go for cheap emo-drama with yet some more references to the 9/11 attacks, that's really annoying. For me, the movie was a complete waste of time. There were no new or refreshing ideas in it, the soundtrack was irritating at times, I didn't feel connected to any of the characters, and it was a waste of talented actors.
