Best Quote: (Hank, Jacob and Lou at Lou's house drinking...Jacob makes fun of Hank's drinking, making dainty sip impersonation- "like some kind of commercial for Preparation X or something...did you ever see anybody drink like that before?"

I love this movie. it starts out with a simple act of greed that quickly spirals out of control. One bad decision after another, mistrust, and paranoia lead to a sad, but inevitable ending. Great performances and a wonderful plot.
