Jim Davis is an ex-Army Ranger who finds himself slipping back into his old life of petty crime after a job offer from the LAPD evaporates. His best friend is pressured by his girlfriend Sylvia to find a job, but Jim is more interested in hanging out and making cash from small heists, while trying to get a law enforcement job so he can marry his Mexican girlfriend.Written by
Freddy Rodríguez worked on this film at the same time as he was shooting season 5 of Six Feet Under (2001). He would work on the show on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and on the film on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. See more »
When Jim learns he has been rejected from the LAPD, Mike suggests it's pretty obvious what has happened, at which point Jim raises his hands in confusion. The following shot shows Jim's hands firm on the wheel before raising them and shaking his head in the same manner. See more »

Went to see the movie last night without knowing what it was about. To say that I enjoyed the movie from start to finish would be an understatement! I thought Christian Bale was absolutely fantastic, his depiction of an ex soldier trying to get back to "normal" ie get a job, have a relationship, while slowly (or maybe not so slowly!)slipping into mayhem & madness was Oscar winning material. He was at war with himself on a downward spiral and bringing any semblance of normality with him. I know I certainly felt I was grabbed by the throat and brought along for the ride. It's not often a movie is so scary and so sad at the same time. I loved it!
