Did You Know?

Trivia

The shot on TV with Heckel and Jeckel in the apartment is actually a snippet from Reservoir Dogs (1992). This is because the director could only use stock from other films owned by Artisan Entertainment. See more »

Goofs

In the last scene when Bartolucci is talking to Elise the sun casts a shadow of his hat on the right side of his face. In the next shot there is no shadow. The sun has clearly set. See more »

Careful who your friends are ....
11 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

I was surprised with Suicide Kings. In the same spirit as Something Wild and The Usual Suspects, this movie is not about the end, but getting you there. The film is well told, keeping you on the edge wanting to know "who's on the inside". Unlike some movies where the wrap up at the end seems too improbable, this one works and works well.

I was unsure of what the movie would be like and so my expectations were low. At the end I had done an 180 degree turn. I was impressed. I look forward to watching this again and picking up on all the clues as to who was doing what and seeing the small details from the start.
