Question: I've read every thing on the Internet i can find and i still don't completely understand the plot. Every explanation leaves questions, such as how does Jimmy (the boyfriend of Natalie that Lenny kills) know about Sammy (he mutters 'Sammy' as he's being dragged down the stairs). How does Natalie know about Lenny (the first time he goes into the bar she says something along the lines of 'you're the memory guy' which suggests she knew he was coming). Can anyone answer these questions or let me know a site where the whole thing is explained?
Question: In Randy's recorded message, he says that "Return of the Jedi" and "Godfather part 3" both reveal something that turns out to be a lie. Of what events is he speaking?
Question: Has anyone tried to really find out what era it was to have taken place in? The Apprentice thing blares obvious, almost intentional. The rest of the comments about the monitor in the hospital and stuff also seem to date the time period. The bigger items that make it seem like the 70's or early 80's are the cars and the phone that Frank has which is very 70's/80's at best. In 2004 hospitals are so far advanced in every part of the country. I believe things like monitors tied into nurses stations and alerts not being able to be turned off locally within it notifying someone can't happen. That has been the case for some time.Jason Etter
Question: After watching "Donnie Darko" I watched another film which also featured a character identical to Frank. He too appeared in the dreams of the lead role and had all the traits of Frank. I am pretty sure it was not the film "Harvey", as I do not believe it was a film as old as that. Can anyone help me identify what the other film was?
Question: What is the meaning of the scene with the hooded blond woman throwing her child in the street? Frankie sees her, starts yelling, and the scene creates a mysterious mood, but I don't really see any connection to the plot.
Question: What is the song played at the credits (the one that is also played when Charlie travels with Irene from Rhode Island), and who sings it?
Question: I don't fully understand how Le Chiffre lost all his money when the bomb failed to blow up the prototype aircraft at Miami airport. If the bomb had exploded, the shares in the airliner would have crumbled, but because it didn't, wouldn't think mean that Le Chiffre missed out on the opportunity to make a load of money, but would still be left with the money he had in the first place?
Question: Does Michael Rosenbaum actually have hair in real life because in many parts of the series Lex Luthor seems to have a grey shade to his head indicating that he has shaved his hair really really finely, so does he have hair and does he therefore have his hair shaved off before filming?
