Bokeem Woodbine who plays Mud, plays a police officer in Unsolved which is about the unsolved murders of the Notorious B.I.G & Tupac. In real life Tupac and Bokeem became friends during this film. See more »
When main characters are in the diner for "breakfast", the TV news broadcast from the kitchen shows the announcer doing station identification as "KMT" ... they're supposed to be in Detroit, east of the Mississippi River, where station IDs start with a "W" ... stations west of the Mississippi start w/ a "K".

I just saw this film an hour ago and i have to say this is a better drug-related film than requiem for a dream. The film features Tim Roth and Tupac Shakur as two addicts who try to kick the habit after their friend (Thandie Newton) falls into a drug induced coma. After being given the run-around by various clinics and offices, they decide to fall back on some drugs before they get into rehab but are chased through the city by a drug dealer and police officers. Tupac and Roth are a great on-screen duo and the film does a good job of showing the grittier side of drugs and the difficulty of quitting. I highly recommend this film as one of Tupac's best and Roth's most obscure roles. Altogether a great movie.
