** [[spoiler:Bruce has such a moment when he pushes DI Drummond against a wall and realizes that he is hurting her. He breaks down, and tearfully admits to her that he knows he is slipping into insanity, that he is a horrible person, and that his wife has left him for reasons he genuinely can't remember. His inner demons soon get a hold of him again and he reverts back to shouting at her that she is a witch who has shagged herself to her promotions.]]

** A major one occurs when [[spoiler:Bruce unsuccessfully attempts to revive a dying man. He then evolved tender feelings to her and she is the only person who sees the "Human" Bruce behind his Fassade]] ** At the End he[[spoiler: records a tape for Bladsy Confessing that everything he does was out of fear of the world and because he was always told he is Filth. He called him his best and only friend. He also gives Bladsey advice how to prevent making the same mistakes as he did.]] * PragmaticAdaptation: The movie manages to stay relatively close to the source material and is faithful to the novel's spirit, however, it does cut several aspects of the book that wouldn't work in film in order to make a more cohesive work. Bruce's cruelty is (very slightly) toned down to make him less irredeemable (although he is far from sanitized) and [[spoiler: The Self/The Tapeworm]] is played down, with his role being given to Bruce's psychiatrist, Dr. Rossi. [[spoiler: It still makes a brief appearance in one of the film's most intense scenes and Rossi is represented in the credits as a tapeworm.]] ** In addition, the black man who is murdered [[spoiler: by Bruce,]] has been changed to a Japanese tourist. [[spoiler: Also, instead of Bruce being responsible for the murder, he is now merely witness to it while dressed as Carole, leaving Gorman's gang as the true culprits.]] * TheSociopath: Bruce, tries to convince himself that he can't feel and succeeds to a certain extent, Ghostie Gorman seems to play this straight.

* KavorkaMan: The list of Bruce's sexual conquests seems endless. Occasionally he's paying, but quite often the women simply fall for his self-assuredness and greasy charm.
