A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
In an interview with Peter Travers (the film critic for Rolling Stone magazine), Christopher Walken talked about his character, Hans: "Everybody in this movie does want something... Hans wants to have a nice life. You know. He has a troubled past: difficult, you know, obviously. And I think he's at a point in his life where everything's okay, and then, you know, his wife dies, and things go... go south." See more »
In the desert, Marty brings Billy the two guns after Hans leaves. Billy takes both guns in his right hand when he starts to stand. When the camera angle changes, though, he twirls just one gun in his right hand. See more »
I don't remember doing anything to piss her off.
Don't worry about it. She's probably pissed at you not for anything specific, more because she's a fucking bitch.
She's not a fucking bitch, Billy. She's just got issues.
Yeah, she's got issues. She's got "being a fucking bitch" issues.

Well I'm gonna push my English to the limits to try and express the wonderful feeling I am still savoring. It is all about pieces coming together perfectly in this movie for me. The plot, THE ACTING, the dialogs, the settings etc. Very shortly after beginning of the movie I had gotten the sensation of being in the presence of a perfectly balanced yet joyfully spontaneous story that allowed me the feeling of a real life playing out in front of me however incongruous it might seem. We all search for this in books and movies the story that would just pick us up and take us along on an exciting ride. So few can do that. Immersion isn't that what gives us the most joy in life. Do not expect anything from this movie
