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.
(at around 7 mins) During the cancer ward visit, the announcement in the background calling for "Dr. Blair, Dr Jane Hamilton, Dr. Jane Hamilton" is a reference to the album "Operation: Mindcrime" by Queensrÿche. The voice is taken directly from the track "Eyes of a Stranger". The album's subject matter of a hitman is in keeping with the film. See more »
While Marty and Billy are standing by the sign that says "No Shooting," the sign changes between loudly blowing in the wind to being still between shots. See more »
Marty, I've been reading your movie. Your women characters are awful. None of them have anything to say for themselves. And most of them get either shot or stabbed to death within five minutes. And the ones that don't probably will later on.
Well, it's a hard world for women. I guess that's what I'm trying to say.
Yeah, it's a hard world for women, but most of the ones I know can string a sentence together.

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
