A couple of people have mentioned the 1/12 close up on Hank's domino.  I
seem to recall from a while back there were some guesses as to the relevance
of the number of pips.  As I remember, when we first see hank the domino has
3:3.  Later, after being "convinced" by Jean Renault with a gun to work for
him, the domino had 4:4.  People at the time suggested that this may be the
number of people he had killed, or something.  Now however, the number has
decreased to 4:3 (or 3:4).  Does anyone have any clue to what this might
mean?  It seems like a relevant clue to Hank's character, as the director
takes great pains to show long close-ups.
