Goofs

Upset after reading a newspaper account of Fay's supposed death in Reno, psychopath Vince, more or less, trashes the restaurant and leaves by the front door. Looking from the inside of the restaurant, we see him walk by the front window and we can read the name of the restaurant Las Vegas Quality Cafe, painted on the window, which tells us where Vince currently is and we can figure out where he's going next. Howsoever, if you paint a restaurant sign on a window, you paint so it can be read from the outside looking in, not so it can be read from the inside looking out. See more »

Nifty little flick
25 June 2005 | by inframanSee all my reviews

What a sexy woman Joanne Whalley is. I can see why Kilmer grabbed her & married her. In this she's the antecedent of the Linda Fiorentino character in Last Seduction, another wondrously sexy wench. John Dahl has a unique & powerful knack for choosing strong actresses & bringing out the universal vixen in them.

The plot's nothing terribly original but it plays its familiar theme with some nice changes & variations. It has that classic quality that the best "noir" films had: it moves right along & keeps you in the center of the action.

One thing I find curious is that no one (to my knowledge) has ever linked the Michael Madsen throat-cutting scene in this film with the Michael Madsen ear-cutting scene in Reservoir Dogs. Give credit where it's due!
