Trivia

In the bank scene Zeke is reading the reprint of Different Seasons by Stephen King. This collection of four short stories includes The Body (which would become the movie Stand by Me), Apt Pupil, Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, and The Breathing Method. See more »

Goofs

At approximately 43 minutes in (during the "Wednesday" segment), we see a front shot of Zeke talking to the FBI men, and he is not wearing sunglasses. A moment later, the camera changes to a rear shot and we can see that Zeke now is wearing sunglasses. See more »

Best dark humour I've seen since Fargo
16 June 2017 | by (Halifax, Canada) – See all my reviews

Unlike other reviewers, I found many lines in this movie were brilliant, which kept me watching it even though it really seemed like a unforgettable plot until it got me well in the end. Seriously though, this is a drama/crime but definitely not a thriller. The acting was fine, and they were probably just having too much fun with those lines without even trying. Cinematography could be better with some hand-held and closeup together. Overall, it is a excellent black humour, and I will certainly watch it for a second time.
