Goofs

Throughout the film, Jim Carrey's accent changes from Eastern European to Western European and he even forgets the accent no less than three times while speaking with an American inflection. With a total shoot of over 30 days, his re-shoots were likely several weeks apart. See more »

Quotes

Kozlov: [narrating his book] You murder a man, and the moment it's done you're already retelling the story to yourself, so that the act of killing is not your act of killing, but belongs, instead, to some fictional simulacrum, in just the same way the men who murdered so prosaically in Auschwitz made peace with what they did; transmuted their memories like pieces of fiction, to the point where good and evil lost all meaning, and the only lights by which they steered were what they tasted, saw, and ...

Sad but true
16 May 2018 | by foxyking93See all my reviews

A film that in a blunt and true way shows what the real world is. It's sad but true. The world is not Wonder Woman, the world is brutal, if you are weak then you lose. It annoys me that all reviews of the film criticize the violence against women and the bluntness shown. Why? This story had to be shown just like that. The film is based on facts and these facts were brutal. Why are all reviewers so politically correct today? It limits directors! Hypocrisy is shocking because the same reviewers do not mind violence against men or bad exploitation of men but are obsessed with women. Stop. Stop to see everything through the prism of political correctness.
