Trivia

According to an interview he gave to the New York Times in 2010, this movie was made during the middle of Wes Bentley's decade-long, extremely serious addiction to cocaine and heroin. He said in that interview that he only accepted any movie roles during that time so that he would have money to buy enough drugs. See more »

Mickey Gravatski: Can you stop?
James Lemac: What are you asking me, if I can be cured? A cure is inconceivable to them, because the crimes are too unforgivable. They simply want people like us dead. But death doesn't end evil. It merely sets it free.
Mickey Gravatski: Are you evil?
James Lemac: If I choose to take responsibility for what I've done.
Mickey Gravatski: Do you?
James Lemac: Do you?

A Killer Film with a Message
10 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally, a "serial killer" film that carries a message and not just a knife. At first, I thought it was another "Mr. Brooks"-- but within moments, especially after seeing Mark (the killer) Borkowski's opening scene-- I knew that this is what Mr. Brooks should have been! It actually reminded me of an Abel Ferrera film; it was shot documentary style with a rich texture filled with severe earth tones. This film geek really appreciated what Thomas Dunn was trying to do. He was taking the "villian" to whole new level in making him a piece of all of us. "Personal Accountability" is the essence and message of this movie. I'm just afraid its going to be caught up in the "slasher" genre and it is so NOT that at all. And where did Mark Borkowski come from? I have to research him and find out what rock he has been hiding under. He was the best (and most human) serial killer I have ever seen in a movie. Oh, and don't blink, you'll miss Kenny Johnson (from The Shield). Wild, seeing Kenny in such an inner city, Ferrera-esquire film. Watch it. And don't blink!
