Continuity mistake: When Nicholas Cage is in the pool and in a couple of other scenes where he is wearing a shirt you can clearly see a tattoo on his back, but when filmed without a shirt the tattoo is gone.
Nicholas Cage and Elizabeth Shue star in this portrait of two broken souls that find each other and try desperately to find love and happiness, if only fleeting solace, in each other's company amid the neon, Casinos, and seedy hotels of Sin City. One is a man who's lost everything to his uncontrolled drinking and is putting himself headlong into one last, suicidal binge while the other is a lonely prostitute who, by chance encounter, finds herself wanting to reach him, and possibly change both their destinies too late. Serious, sad and tragic, the character's plights and struggles are moving and fascinating, with the stars both convincingly portraying failed lives spiraling downward. Not a happy movie, but a good drama.
