As Jim has finished his meal at the Diner, (time 13 mins 11 secs) his cutlery (both knife and fork) are 180 opposite to his seated position, it appears that the set manager placed the plate with cutlery facing them instead of Jim, hence the orientation of the knife and fork to Jim on the plate are inaccurate.

It's just so strange. Nothing is as I imagined it would be.
It never is.. for anyone.

Berenger is great.
Tom Berenger really does a good job of an old, slow dying man who limps his way through his final few days.
As for the movie... if this had been a 'Nordic' film with a Nordic cast this would probably have been better received... as it is, it's an American film, so the jury haven't been so kind.
It's a film of two halves and the first half is brilliant. A great sense of atmosphere and the cold, FREEZING outdoors! The direction jumps around quickly to set up the location and the characters.
The second half turns into a routine slugfest between the good guy (Tom) and some silly men who are after some stolen money. It's a wonder how they pulled off this heist at all, given that they are all stupid and all prone to make stupid decisions!
I saw it through to the end because it started off so well, and I like Tom... but by the end I was a bit annoyed.
