Kudoke Real Skeleton Stars In ‘Last Looks’ Feature Film Alongside Charlie Hunnam And Mel Gibson
by Ian Skellern
A star is born! We can add another great quote to the pantheon of classic movie lines that include the following:
“I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.” The Godfather
“I see dead people.” Sixth Sense
“Go ahead, make my day.” In Sudden Impact as spoken by Dirty Harry (Clint Eastwood)
“May the force be with you.” Star Wars
“I’ll have what she’s having.” When Harry Met Sally
“You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Jaws
“I’ll be back.” The Terminator
I was watching the movie Last Looks the other night, a whodunnit starring Charlie Hunnam as a cast-out cop and Mel Gibson as a drunken thespian. The plot was moving along nicely when Gibson said, “Have you seen what [watch] this man wears? It costs more than the house I grew up in.”
I nearly fell off my chair at the reply: “It’s a Kudoke Skeleton; they only make 35 a year.”
I’m usually blasé about product placement watches in films, but a Kudoke Real Skeleton? Chapeau! It’s usually big-brand watches that turn up as props in films; a watch by a small independent brand is a big deal (for indie watchmaker aficionados anyway).
And the watch wasn’t simply a bit of wrist candy, it was the essential clue that led to the killer being revealed.
