When the three are in the hotel room together, it is obviously dark outside and the time is even stated at being "midnight". However, when the television is turned on, the news channel is running live stock quotes (something that would only happen during the day) and the time on the television reads "1:30PM" See more »

If you don't like movies that ask you to work with them and make you think, then pass this one up. I am not fond myself of cute cult flicks that everyone says are oh-so-marvelous, such as "In the Bedroom," which I thought stunk. This movie with its bullseye performances is one of the best. Heaven forbid there are leitmotifs and innuendoes and symbolic turns in this film. It's intriguing, convoluted, brain-teasing, mesmerizing, funny, scarey, and altogether enjoyable. So, if you prefer whiz-bang, shoot-em-ups, with no plot, no character, and hackneyed characterizations, wait for the next Hollywood blockbuster, and avoid this adult drama that has flair, spice, hidden flavors.
