When they are behind bars, Vincent told Shane that he can't believe that he was caught by the police because of a joint smoking. He said that it was his first time to smoke a joint and that he even don't smoke, where in their first meet up with Shane while telling the story of his trip to France in 1997 he was smoking and you can see that he was kind a pro with it.

I popped the DVD into my PC just to see what this film looked and sounded like - and was immediately wrapped up in the visuals, the story and especially the sound. Even with a modest 5.1 speaker system I was amazed - it's hard to imagine a bigger or better experience in a cinema. Ninety minutes later I logged onto IMDb to sing its praises.
I like that the script is very tight - yet allowing space for the characters to breathe. You can't help trying to second guess how they'll develop, because there's enough divergence to counter predictability - meaning that it all makes good reasonable sense and is very satisfying.
The surround sound mix is just one of the attractions - and as well as being morally sound (very homo and hetero friendly) it's damned fine entertainment.
