Goofs

Jonah tells the stranger that all the hotel's rooms are non-smoking, and that he has to have a credit card to book a room. In the mid-1990s, when the film is set, most hotels (especially in small towns) still had both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Also at that time, most smaller hotels would accept cash without a credit card. See more »

Although this is a complete departure from Rami's Mr. Robot role, there were still some common themes shared by both projects (especially with respect to mind games).

It was hard to see him so dejected and beaten by his circumstances. What a a masterclass performance! The best performances were Rami (he carried the entire pic) and DJ Qualls provided superb support.

CANNOT wait to see what's next for Rami!

A shoutout to the cinematographer is also mandatory in the review of this film. The cinematography was breathtaking and crisp.

Loved, loved, loved it!
