    I was as surprised to see this movie rated this high as stephen rea was when he found the big surprise in the crackerjack box ( if you get my drift ).

    Rea and Davidson are incomparably good in an exceptional film that is by turns darkly funny and deeply affecting. Though Jordan's control sometimes falters, it's a small price to pay for his daring.

    One of a very few films that wants to do something unexpected and challenging, and succeeds even beyond its ambitions. See this film. Then shut up about it.
