(at around 57 mins) During Jacob's and Frank's dinner together, the clock in the restaurant keeps shifting between shots, even though it is supposed to be one continuous scene. At one point the clock reads 11:35, and at another it shows about 9:40. See more »
Honestly it's the best movie I've seen in my 25 years. I've seen it a dozen times now, and I love it more every time. The plot is perfect, the acting is perfect, the cinematography is perfect. The ending segment with Monty and his father is about the most powerful I've ever seen.
So many unforgettable scenes in the movie:
Frank & Monty at the club the last night
The "make me ugly" scene
Monty and his dad in the car
If you haven't seen it, go get it right now. You can't miss this one.
