I usually shy away from movie discussions here that aren;t tied to writing, but in this case, just got to say that you;re wrong, wrong, wrong. A great movie. The dynamics were all there, so I thought, and it worked like a charm. A more sophisticated and interesting movie than Snatch, which I thought shared a little of the sensibility here, especially with the
"surreal" elements.

And where would we be without guys to jackhammer holes in the wall?
