I need to see this movie again. I feel it was good but watching it at 2am I was a bit tired and distracted. The dialog, though fast, was just brilliantly witty, imo:

Brendan: I’ve got knives in my eyes, I’m going home sick.

Laura: Why’d you take a powder the other night?
Brendan: Same reason I’m taking one now… Look, I’m not heeling you to hook you.

Assistant VP: You’ve helped this office out before.
Brendan: No, I gave you Jerr to see him eaten, not to see you fed

Perhaps it was a bit over the top. The speed of the film can feel quite jerky, going from very slow ambient moments to extremely fast detailed dialogs that you have to refocus to catch up. I would really like to hear the directors cut. There are some nice techniques such as scenes where the film was cut up and blotchy/jerky itself. additionally the more violent transitions were done well. err, need to rematch
