Trivia

Lead actor Stephen Dorff is really claustrophobic. Director Gabe Torres did not know this until after filming wrapped. Torres stated that Dorff's willingness to stay inside a glass box for the duration of filming was "extreme method acting". See more »

Goofs

When Jeremy reaches through the tube to the interior of the car, he pulls back his hand with two knuckles scraped raw and a cigarette lighter burn on his hand. The knuckle wounds remain but the cigarette lighter burn disappears within seconds. See more »

Quotes

Jeremy Reins: I never wanted to do anything to let you down, ever. I know I've done things to hurt you. I've never wanted to in my life. But I hurt you and I'm sorry. I can't- I can't think about those things now. I can't do anything about that now. I can't do anything about it. I'm asking you now to accept me. To accept me for who I am.
Molly Reins: Of course. Of course, baby. I accept you. I love you. No matter what.
Jeremy Reins: I love you so much. I love you so much...

Exhilarating from start to finish
23 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most unique and intriguing films I have seen in years. My reaction to Brake was similar to when I first watched The Usual Suspects. I had only a loose understanding of what the film was about before I went in, but after I walked out, I was speechless. How? Thats the only thing I kept asking, how did they do it? A true think piece crossed with an action flick, nothing is what it seems in Brake. The performances are solid throughout, Stephen Dorff gives a gritty, organic performance and this vehicle finally allows him to flex those acting muscles in a way we haven't seen in some time. Gabe Torres takes a gamble on a script that seems immeasurably difficult to bring to life, and builds a roller-coaster ride out of it, flawlessly. If you have the chance, see this film! It will change your opinion about what is fundamentally possible in cinema.
