Sean Cw Johnson,
In the flashback where the main character, as a youth, stole twenty dollars from the blind boy, a "new" twenty dollar bill (with the large face of Jackson) was used. That bill was introduced in 1998 and thus most likely would have not been in existence at the time of the supposed flashback. The movie was released and presumably set in 2008, and the protagonist was in his early 30's. See more »
Watching this 'movie' was an awe-filled exercise in simulated audience participation. The viewer is quite aware - on one level - that it is a movie within a virtual reality show but on another level does prove - if one watches it to the end - that we are fascinated with pain as long as it is not our own to borrow a phrase from the writer. The truth of one statement certainly lingers..."Debt is better than any treaty," and finds its equally horrible juxtaposition that "Sin is nothing without judgment". I cannot say this was a likable movie and no doubt the lesson is as ironic as the statement "Being innocent didn't make anyone not get beat up." If nothing else the viewer goes on a philosophical journey into man's inhumanity to man's steps at civilization versus being civilized. Still appropriate and should remain so...but at some point won't we really have to get better at it?
