Trivia

Goofs

Jonah tells the stranger that all the hotel's rooms are non-smoking, and that he has to have a credit card to book a room. In the mid-1990s, when the film is set, most hotels (especially in small towns) still had both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Also at that time, most smaller hotels would accept cash without a credit card. See more »

Watch this if you are Remi Malek fan
27 May 2017 | by nowegoSee all my reviews

This reminded me of The Matrix. If you haven't seen The Matrix you will not have a clue what I am talking about.

Three story lines, never sure which one is the real one and which is imagination or hallucination. Development of each could have been much better, but it would have made the movie a lot longer, which was probably a constraint along with the obvious low budget.

Remi Malek does very well in his role, the obvious likenesses to Mr Robot show though, even though I believe he did this prior to Mr Robot.

Some of the movie is slow, other parts are very entertaining, but it could have been done better so only 5.5/10 for me.
