When Mike Dixon is looking through the Hull's pictures, there is a picture from Derek Hull's Marine days, which was clearly a photo of Alexander Skarsgård with former marine Eric Kocher while they were working on HBO's Generation Kill (2008). The photo after is also a picture of the cast of Generation Kill, and many of the actors from the show can be identified. See more »

Why hasn't this movie been raved about? One of the best I have seen in a long time. Don't even think it got a cinema release in Australia. This is the sort of movie that should have Oscar nominations and a must see. An ensemble cast and all are outstanding. Jason Bateman is such an under rated actor but can just about do anything, probably hurt by Arrested Development although I must admit I did like that show. If you liked movies like Crash you should enjoy this. 3 stories going on at the same time which also have some intermingling, if there is such a word. IMDb rating is a bit low and I would rate it in the high 8's even getting close to a 9. Have banged on a bit as I didn't realize you needed to submit 10 lines of text to post a review/comment.
