In a cut scene after Al leaves Circle Rent A Car, he stops for lunch at a roadside diner. He sees a little girl squirt mustard on a hot dog, which then flows backward into the bottle. The mom smacks the bottle out of her hand and yells at her for playing with it. The girl starts crying, which makes the mom yell at her. She then slaps the girl across the face. Al explains to the mom that she shouldn't do that, and she replies that she'll do whatever she wants to with her. Enraged, Al jumps up and screams at her, "Lady, you touch her again and I'll smash your face right through that window!" There is stunned silence, and Al can't believe what he did. He casually walks away, stepping on the mustard bottle. See more »
A sleeper movie that deserves to be viewed and recommended.
While sitting at home with the flu one day, I watched this gem of a movie and I swear I felt better for it. I was charmed by it's great plotline and symbolism; and the acting is superb from every performer. The movie is nearly hypnotic as it takes you to another reality. It is so believable, and the ending brought me to tears. I have recommended this movie to everyone.
