A man in a suit at a Manhattan firm leaves work on Friday; he looks unhappy. He stops at a fortune teller's for a Tarot reading: "You are not where you belong," she tells him. That evening he quits his marriage and walks the streets of New York, passing from a classy bar to a gentleman's club, then to a high-class bordello, a mugging, a pawnshop, and a diner where someone does listen. He shares his insights with her and later with others. Violence, disappointment, and musings entwine as Edmond loses his moorings while believing he's found them. Where does he belong?Written by
In the commentary, the director and producers tell a story of when filming the scene when Edmond was beating the pimp and screaming various racial slurs, Jamie Foxx was filming a TV pilot nearby and walked over a bit upset at what he was hearing, and talked to the various black actors and crew standing around.

The card handed to Edmond by "Man in Bar" shows the address as 46th St., but Edmond is instructed to go to 47th St. See more »
Its a great movie. So exciting! Usually cruel in telling the truth. It gets you in, ties your arms and legs, and at the end, hits you real hard. There is good quality black humor served as rare cooked conversations. Important little details and the declaration of looserness inside the movie is amazing. But of course the casting has a lot to do with it. The general flow of the events and conversations are about life, its dynamics, relationships and social tendencies. But what the movie is really all about, you find it out at the end.
Definitely worth watching. But not with kids around; not when you are in a negative mood neither. :)
