Nice little thriller that had all the actions happened and wrapped up in the course of about 74 minutes, between 12:16 pm and 1:30 pm inside and around the swanky Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in LA, site of numerous Hollywood films such as True Lies and In the Line of Fire in 1990s to Interstellar in 2014. Good old movie without special effects, nudity or supernatural scheme to maintain viewer attention, just a few good actors, a believable story and some good dialogue.

Its even better the second time around!!
Depp is very good as Everyman. Walken is scary Walken. Great script ,..doesn't even need any explosions! ( ...gave it 4 out of 5 stars.)

Hilarious at he end:

I told them I could make a killer of you.
===
What are you doing?
-Giving you a clean windshield.
I don't want my windshield cleaned.
-You just think you don't.
I know I don't want it cleaned. Get outta here.
-Don't be like that. I'm the Moses of dirty windshields leading you through the desert of dead bugs.
This is the last time. Get outta here.
-I've already done it. You have to pay me now.
I ain't paying nothing.
-You'll deny me a lousy dollar, after I've given you a clean windshield?
Fxcking A!
-I don't think so! I think this is worth a dollar. Give it to me.
L'll do better than that.
-You ungrateful honky, I'm gonna... whip your ass!
...
-Nothing like a good wing-tip.
