Stand Up Guys (2012) Poster



Jump to: Spoilers (2)
The only piece of "modern technology" in the film is the new car that Pacino, Walken, and Arkin drive throughout the film. If you notice, every other technology used is very old: rotary dial phones are used constantly; many AWA televisions are seen, one showing an old episode of what appears to be Soul Train; and several old cars are seen in the background throughout the film.
When Val and Doc confront some thugs in an upstairs loft space there is archival footage of Wayne Cochran and the C.C. Riders playing on a television set.
