    The scene with Little Bill, the Duck of Death and Beauchamp in Little Bill's house kind of hammered that theme home.
    The ending, too, even if its twist on the classic Western ending was a little heavy handed with the symbolism. Instead of the hero riding off into the sunset with his gal waving after him, you get a murderer riding off into the stormy night with a scared whore crying.

    A criminally unsung movie from 2000 - the cast and writer-director David Mamet alone got me to buy a ticket. It's a very funny movie, but the payoff at the end you never see coming and makes everything before it that much funnier.
