Jurgen Knieper music makes me feel so detached from reality.
Hmmm...middle-aged guy discovers he has a terminal illness and decides to break the law for a large amount of cash to set up his family for the future after he dies...can anyone say 'Breaking Bad'?
Also love the Dennis Hopper selfies taken on the pool table-so ahead of his time...
Nothing to fear but fear itself, and what do you make? i make money! Great lines! It's a very peculiar film.
