Did You Know?

Trivia

Billy Bickle (Sam Rockwell) seems very much inspired by Robert De Niro's character in Taxi Driver (1974) Travis Bickle. As well is their last name they also share a mental illnesses and desire for violence. See more »

Goofs

The type of flare gun Billy fires is clearly single charge - so Charlie Costello would know it was empty when Billy comes down from the rocks, with the flare gun at the dog's head. Unless Charlie brought spare flares that Billy found when quickly rummaging through the convertible - or Billy coincidentally brought flares with him. Both highly unlikely. See more »

Quotes

Billy: This is kind of like that window of time when you're waiting in the waiting room of the VD clinic, isn't it? For the door to open and the doctor to come out and say, "Billy, you're good to go." Or, "Billy, you've got VD." Or chlamydia or whatever.

So witty. What a ride!
10 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I see the words "cult classic" in this movie's future. At the very least, I'll be adding this to my collection of movies such as Kick Ass, Pulp Fiction, Zombieland and Hot Fuzz that I love to watch over and over.

You know from the very first scene that this is not your typical Hollywood junk. It was HYSTERICAL, albeit in a pretty sick and twisted way - this is not for the faint of heart. The woman behind me must not have seen the previews, because she got up and left. I'm going to have to see it again this weekend just to catch some of the witty one-liners that I couldn't hear over the roaring laughter. The audience even applauded when it ended.

The script is razor sharp, and you couldn't dream up a better cast to bring it to life. I've always liked Sam Rockwell, but this was a star-making turn for him (at least in my book). You've never seen a movie quite like this. I see a new movie nearly every week, and I rarely feel compelled to sit down and write a review. So take my advice, do yourself a favor and go see it!
