When the cops conduct a raid on Jesse's house and Bud searches through the kitchen freezer, a box of frozen Pepperidge Farm Garlic flavored Texas Toast sits in the freezer door.

Quotes

[first lines]
Bud Carter: South Louisiana in the 1980s was a different kind of time and place. Some called it lawless. But it wasn't. Others said we just got a certain way of doing things down here. But it ain't that either. Instead, I call it what it was. Hell with the lid off.

Seriously .... has Dafoe ever given a bad performance?
21 December 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... and the answer of course is no.

Since he first burst on scenes playing (not joking) Jesus, he has never been less than mesmerizing.

(And his work in Shadow of the Vampire, 2000, never got the acclaim it deserved).

I mention that because cops and robber movies have been around since the silent films but the performances of Dafoe playing against Dillon (never better here, strong physicality, amazing he never played bad guys before) is the heart and soul of this picture, and it keeps you glued to the screen.

Interesting that they used a near-A lister like Amy Smart merely as eye candy, with almost no dialogue. Not that she was less than fetching, but it was an odd bit of casting.
