In an early fight, Billy's left ear is injured (outside near top cut open) and after is shown being sown together by Thai inmate: latter shots showing same ear have no sign of such / healing / scar or (probable) likes injury: of note, when the real B. Moore turns up as a visitor (as his own father) at the end, it is clear that his (real Billy) left ear (outside top) is missing. See more »
This little gem of a movie was quite worth the watch. Gritty, some uncomfortable to watch scenes- but wildly successful with regard to storytelling. The main Character (Joe Cole) is so damn interesting, he draws you into his world and the structure of the movie forces you to see the world from his eyes. There is very little English dialogue and not many subtitles- but you won't even notice - which is impressive. It's a simple story about a guy arrested and incarcerated in a foreign land, fighting to survive, but it delves so much deeper than that. Joe Cole IS the movie and he carries the story.
