Crazy Credits

At the beginning of the New Yorker Video DVD, right before the main menu appears, a quote of Eddie Fleming fills the screen: "Just goes to show you how the mind works." At the very end, after the credits roll, a quote of Det. Steele fills the screen: "I don't know Mr. Fleming, how does the mind work?" But if you run the end credits a second time a different quote appears at the end, this time from Det. Prior: "It's about a fucking stolen fucking car you fucking fuckwit." See more »

Excellent
27 June 2002 | by hfkSee all my reviews

What an excellent movie. Do not pass this one by: although it's virtually static (most of it takes place in a police station interview room, and most of what's left occurs in other portions of the same station) it is absolutely riveting. I wonder how many viewers of this movie shared my thoughts immediately afterwards: why in the world don't we see more movies of this calibre?
