Trivia

Directors Ray Burdis and 'Dominic Anciano' prepared a "bible" that detailed all the characters' back stories and motivations. This was sufficiently detailed to eliminate the need for endless rehearsals. Instead, each scene was shot on the first improvisation. New content was then added to each subsequent take to keep the scene fresh and original. See more »

Quotes

Jude: Who was that? What was she doing? Well, I might reveal it... and I might not. I have to keep you on the edge of your seats. You see that's the joy of making a cutting edge film. Real life on celluloid. Stay tuned!

A Beautiful, Dark Cloud with No Silver Lining
26 January 2004 | by Edgar L. DavisSee all my reviews

The premise of Final Cut is interesting. A man (Jude Law) dies

and leaves behind a film for his friends to watch at his wake. His

wife (Law's real life spouse Sadie Frost) is the Mistress of

Ceremonies at this screening but we find out later that she is

much more than that. The performances are riveting and the slow

build of tension is tittilating but the pay off is a little disappointing.

some of the violence and shock is laced with a sense of humor at

first but soon it gets very serious then downright careless and

callouse. It is hard to root for any of these characters to succeed.

They seem to have no redeeming value so when something bad

happens to them you are relieved but the punishment is so easily

shaken off. Lots of mischief, revelation and loss but no hope or

redemption.
