I finally just got around with watching Layer Cake with Daniel Craig as the main character ‘XXXX,’ and I’m a little confused about the very last scene. I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t follow a lot of what was going on, because for some reason I was having a really hard time with the accents. For instance, the scene where Jimmy was talking to what was I guess a cop, and XXXX had the recording of it: I had NO idea what was said in that entire scene, and didn’t figure out that Jimmy was talking to the cops until XXXX came out and said it later on.
So my question is: Why did Sidney kill XXXX at the end? The only thing I can figure out is that it was misplaced anger at the Duke getting killed by Colm Meaney’s character. But I could have missed something in the dialogue that would have given Sidney another reason.
Minor question, I know, but it’s nagging me. Can anyone fill me in?
