The U-turn that Marta performs to initiate "the dumbest car chase of all time" is shown in two shots (separated by a brief cut to Blanc's reaction). In the first shot the vehicle leaves no tire marks on the road, but the second shows new skid marks on parts of the surface that had previously been driven over cleanly. See more »
You won, not by playing the game Harlan's way, but yours. You're a good person.

A joy to watch from start to finish. Excellently filmed and very clever. The cast all hit the mark. Charismatic Daniel Craig shines throughout. Even Chris Evans shows he can be much more, or maybe less like Captain America than ever. Murder mystery's don't get much better than this.
I admit I was a skeptic, given my distaste for Johnson's Last Jedi. But I was pleasantly surprised from the get go. The script is smart and captivating. So kudos to you Mr. Johnson for a well written and directed piece of cinema. I will watch your next film with anticipation.
