These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: The Motorcycle Boy is Jesus. Consider the final moments of the film, when he sacrifices himself allowing his brother to escape to California, and far away from the unnamed town. Or should I say limbo?
However, in the book, Rusty James is arrested and unable to save the fish; they die on the floor.
Moment of Awesome: The Motorcycle Boy breaking every bone in a guy's body by ramming him with his motorbike.
Music Of Awesome: The film features a stellar soundtrack by Stewart Copeland of The Police.
