Trivia

Several articles of graffiti are seen in the rest area near the highway; 'Don't look up here, you're pissing on your shoes' above the urinals, 'My mother made me a whore' on the wall, and 'All that you love will be carried away' in the broken map case. These are taken from another short story by Stephen King called "All you love will be carried away", found in the collection 'Everything's Eventual'. See more »

Goofs

When Robinson target practices with his pistol, the camera gives a "down the barrel" view. The interior of the barrel is smooth. All pistols have a rifled barrel (as shown in the famous James Bond film introductions). See more »

Good thriller
29 December 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The film „Dolan's Cadillac" addresses the sad issue of the traffic of illegal immigrants in the United States, in this case women destined for prostitution rings. Jimmy Dolan is one such trafficker. The part is played in a masterful way by Christian Slater who manages to appear as a particularly vicious and spiteful character. He is especially brilliant in the last scene. The film uses the old time narrative favorite of taking a Mr Everybody, in this case Wes Bentley in the part of a school teacher, placed in a situation he is not cut for, thus ensuring viewer identification with the main protagonist. A short thriller – unlike some other material by Stephen King – with good montage and music.
