I found this interview with the writer and director, Rian Johnson in which he explains it: Could you explain " '78 Caddy? Controversial choice."? Rian Johnson: That was one of the first cars I owned after college. And the "controversial choice" was something a friend of mine used to say, and you would never know whether it was a diss or compliment. ...


From the script: CHIEF OF POLICE (in Czech) It has been a privilege, madame, to behold even briefly such a strong, beautiful flower. PENELOPE (in Czech) Thank you sir, I will not soon forget your ...
