    Thanks, Gonzalo, I guess, although that's 22 minutes of my life I'll never get back. Terrible adaptation of possibly one of the most perfect short crime stories ever written.

    On another note, I watched Man Who Wasn't There again last night, and that's really a terrific movie homage to Thompson, and I have to think the strong physical resemblance of Billy Bob Thorton in that movie to Jim Thompson was not accidental.
