Trivia

During production, the printer responsible for the postal vehicles and police cars provided the number 420 for the police car. The joke wasn't lost on the crew and new numbers were requested and provided. However, the original 420 still appears on the police car in the movie. See more »

Goofs

When Derby pulls into the post office, he pulls in directly beside the pickup, with the yellow newspaper box near the right fender of the car. When he stops, there is a space between his car and the pickup and the newspaper box is to the left of his car. See more »

An engaging noir film in the tradition of the Coen brothers
27 May 2015 | by ginocox-206-336968See all my reviews

"Cut Bank" is a moody noir mystery/thriller that deserves much better reviews than the middling critiques it has received. It is evocative of Coen brothers films like "Fargo," "Blood Simple" and "The Ladykillers," but manages to be original and unpredictable. Performances by the top-notch cast are low-key, but credible. The atmosphere is suitably dreary, desolate and depressing. Technical aspects are adequate, if not inspired.

The denouement is emotionally satisfying if one puts ones brain on hold and ignores everything one knows about forensic science. The film offers a flimsy rationale based on the small town setting, but it still tests the limits of the audience's willful suspension of disbelief. However, other events are well-grounded. The motives and capabilities of the villain are a bit over the top, but not so much as to distract.

Overall it is an engaging and original noir film with excellent performances by a talented cast.
