Did you know?
The description of Dolan as having a thousand names, being able to look at you a certain way so that your prostate goes bad, and killing the grass where he spits, is actually taken nearly word-for-word from the description of Randall Flagg, The Walkin' Dude from Stephen King's novel 'The Stand'.

In Vegas Dolan stays at The Montressor Hotel. This is a tip to the story that inspired Stephen King to write 'Dolan's Cadillace' - Poe's 'The Cask of Amontillado'. "For God's Sake, Montressor!" is a famous line from this tale.

Several articles of graffiti are seen in the rest area near the highway; 'Don't look up here, you're pissing on your shoes' above the urinals, 'My mother made me a whore' on the wall, and 'All that you love will be carried away' in the broken map case. These are taken from another short story by Stephen King called "All you love will be carried away", found in the collection 'Everything's Eventual'.

When Robinson target practices with his pistol, the camera gives a "down the barrel" view. The interior of the barrel is smooth. All pistols have a rifled barrel (as shown in the famous James Bond film introductions).

The highway where "Dolan" is "buried", according to the film (shown on a sign and on the work order) is US Highway 71. US 71 is nowhere near Las Vegas or Los Angeles. It runs from Southern La. to Northern Mn.

Robinson is following Dolan's Cadillac to Los Angeles and at the detour, the sign points "DETOUR" to the right yet the highway flag-person sends them to the left into the desert.

Robinson: Do you ever have one of those moments where everything... I mean, everything in the universe makes perfect sense? Everything just falls into place?

Robinson: The view from hell is clear and bright. The sun is black, the night is radiant. Good is evil, evil is good. Sweet insanity understood.

Robinson: He looks like anybody you see on the street. But when he grins, birds fall off telephone lines. When he looks at you a certain way, your prostate goes bad, and your urine burns. The grass yellows up and dies where he spits. He's always outside. He came out of time. He has the name of a thousand demons. He can call the wolves and live in with the crows. He's the king of nowhere. I waited and watched. I watched and I waited. For years I saw him come and I saw him go. Dolan.
