They all gotta' go somehow, doll. We all do. It was all written down more than a million years ago by a very funny god. You know, in the beginning, there was nothing. Then He spoke, and that's when all the shit started. We're just pawns, kid. You know, players. Playin' a part. God had to do something to amuse Himself, so He dreamt us up. I hope He got a good laugh, don't you, babe?
Carol Lakewood Morton:
The things you say, Marty.

If you like movies that are warped, dysfunctional, and twisted and you like looking at beautiful people, then this movie is for you. It is a touching tale of sibling love. Billy Zane, Gina Gershon & Sheryl Lee play the main characters and as usual are great in this film. There is a lot of subtlety in the ways that each of the characters develop, not only in the dialog but also in the use of lighting and camera angles. For me, I found it to be a very intriguing movie; I had no idea where it was headed. It is not what I would consider an action type movie but is instead a more character driven movie. You really need to pay attention to the little things going on to fully appreciate how great this movie is. I loved this movie and hope that more folks will watch it.
