GREAT FILM
18 September 2000 | by fightclub-3See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies made in a while.

It centers upon a twenty dollar bill and we follow the Twenty dollar bill from the day it is made on. We see stories such as a robbery, Scams, Love and a pre-teen ringing phone sex lines.

This is a piece of art that should be seen
