Trivia

The titles of the movie are homage to Jean-Luc Godard. They appear in similar manner and use the same font as a number of Godard's 1960s films, such as Made in U.S.A (1966) and Pierrot le Fou (1965). Godard is also known for his uses of jump cuts in his movies, whereas this movie has virtually none.
