Quotes

Bill Kincaid: I was born just a few minutes before my brother, Brady. He lived life on his own terms, indifferent to fear - either his own, or those of others. And, let's be honest, by any normal measure my brother was a criminal and a colossal fuckup.
[laughter]
Bill Kincaid: But, in the years that we were together, when we were growing up, he gave me the happiest freest times that I will ever know. I don't know why it took me so long to realize that. I left Little Dixie because of my own fears. My greatest regret is that...

Tarantino-like
10 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A quirky comedy-crime drama morph without the over-the-top acting and scenarios common to Quentin's films.

Everything is understated in this film, so much so that it becomes the one drawback that makes the crimes hard to believe. At the same time, it does create surprises and make the film as a whole funnier and more emotionally moving in a lot of ways.

Norton and the visual effects, editing, and makeup people pull off an absolutely seamless transition between the two roles he plays. If you don't know in advance, as I didn't, you start to wonder if they were up to the same tricks used in Benjamin Button or if they had a look-alike playing the role.

Finally, the film benefits from a lot of great supporting acting, both the big name actors and small, that keeps the film real even when it starts getting surreal.
