- Dawson Casting: Rinko Kikuchi was 25 when she was cast as the high schooler Chieko Wataya. Justified here given her multiple scenes of nudity.
- Fake American: Australian Cate Blanchett as American Susan Jones.
- We Used to Be Friends: This film marked the (very bitter) fall out between up-till-then close partners Guillermo Arriaga (screenwriter) and Alejandro González Iñárritu (director).
