Review by anonymous (posted on 1-Aug-2006)

It took me a couple viewings to completely figure out what was up with the myriad plot twists. Complex and layered to say the least. (Just like life - watch your back.) And that is the reason I now LOVE THIS MOVIE! Thanks once again to those brilliant Coens and another standout role from the underrated Gabriel Byrne (who should have a received at least one Oscar by now).
