I don't know why this movie isn't talked about more. Also Ray is great in it, he's such a natural actor is it almost like he isn't acting at all. I read the Goodis novel a few months ago and I remember thing that it seemed like perfectly suited to be a movie. He didn't get a chance to write the screenplay for this and because of it the end is completely different from the novel. Still this ending has some merit and is brutal and interesitng in it's own way.
