WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD:
Just saw this film last night. I am confused about the guy at the ATM—you know, the one with the long hair and beard, (and wearing the sunglasses and earring that he got from the victims). He comes up behind Clint Eastwood’s character at the ATM machine, claps his hand on Eastwood’s shoulder, and says something about “Are you done, buddy?” or something like that. Eastwood later deduces that this guy at the ATM was, indeed, the killer.
But how can this be? The ATM guy surely was not supposed to be Jeff Daniels’ character, was it? At the climax of the movie, Daniels says that “I could have killed you at the ATM” but if he was not the guy at the ATM, where was he? Who was that guy at the ATM?
I went back and found that scene on the DVD and looked at the ATM guy (with the beard, sunglasses, etc.) and he was NOT Daniels. Didn’t have the same mouth. (Daniels has this weird mouth—thin upper lip, funny curve to his mouth.) This guy had fuller lips—no way in hell was he Daniels. Was Eastwood’s character wrong about the ATM guy?
What gives here?
