Trivia

In the graveyard scene, the grave that the Jack of Diamonds killer is hiding behind is named "Rourke". Mickey Rourke was initially cast in the movie, but dropped out after disagreements with the director. See more »

Goofs

At the final showdown, the Jack of Diamonds that is facing the camera in Bonnie's collar moves from the right front to the back left of the dog's neck. This cannot be explained away by the collar slipping around its neck, since the face of the card would be facing away from the camera and into its neck if it did slide around there. See more »

Christopher Walken is brilliant
3 February 2013 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie last week and I am still returning to re watch because it contains some of the most fascinating scenes I have ever watched.

I think the casting was very good. Sam Rockwell, who had already pulled off a slowly degrading and paranoid character living in moon alone, really succeeds in bearing the weight of the story. He is essentially causes almost all the progress single handedly and the parts really fit together.

Colin Farrell, who is a favorite of the director is another good flavor but I didn't really get impressed with his acting or his character. Because his character has almost no impact, he is dragged along to different situations and usually has no bearing in the movie. Maybe it supposed to represent the director in some level but it is very interesting to see the story teller who doesn't even realize how little control he has on his own story.

But I am mainly reviewing this title to praise Christopher Walken. Every one of is scenes are perfect, he is just brilliant. I have always liked him but I could never imagine that I would be impressed this much with his acting. I think the character is very interesting, his dialogs really fit the atmosphere and in general it was a very essential part of a good story.
