Before 'covfefe', there was 'coentwu'. Righteous Kill is one film that comes to my mind where it's as if they thought up the twist ending first and then wrote the whole story to support it. That's why it sucked so thoroughly despite having two giants Pacino and DeNiro. This looks like a well researched comment. They only had to say that Frankie went insane and tried to kill them both. Dugan (Wayne Knight) was a witness, too. He would definitely have helped make it look plausible to the police. Yes, he was impotent initially but later he did manage to make love to her. It is a plot point copied as it is from Bonnie and Clyde. I enjoyed reading this post. In the novel, there is one Caucasian and one Native American child who are mistreating the horse and Rooster kicks both of them in the mud. Don't know why Coens changed that to them both being Native American. The junkyard guys. They had some cause to get angry. The marines were just obnoxious. <blockquote>That dialogue implies that he had never heard that fact, yet he still knew it.<blockquote> No, that is not what the "It has to be" means. What is does mean is that since he has made this statement within the period during which it is impossible for him to lie, it has got to be true - otherwise he would not have been able to say it in the first place. <blockquote>I laughed out loud when Kurtwood Smith had the cuban prisoner on the stand and threatens him by saying "I can sentence you to more years than you've already served".</blockquote> I understand how you can think that. It is indeed not very clear who says that line. However, I just watched the film and understood that it was the judge who says the line. His lips are not shown moving but neither are Kurtwood Smith's. And it is in the voice of the actor who plays the judge, not Smith. Kirstie Alley was in an entirely different film that happened to have the same title. It was made in 1984. <blockquote>It also came out at a time where Sandler's comedies were all grossing over $100 million each</blockquote> Except Little Nicky, which flopped hard. The wolves are symbolic. They represent the forces that are closing in upon them. Even after leaving Yuriatin to throw the human wolves off their scent, they have been found. The novel's Lara is a much stronger person than the movie's Lara; physically as well as mentally. Examples: A) She willingly estranges herself from her mother and brother and goes away to work as a nanny just to extricate herself from Komarovsky's hold. B) When Yuri visits her at her house in Yuriatin she is carrying two pails of water up a staircase. When he offers to carry them for her, she politely refuses, saying that she always finishes what she begins. That's why it is more believable that Yuri would instantly feel a mysterious connection and attraction towards her at first fleeting sight. That's also why Pasha and Komarovsky want her as well.
