TB: In the end of the movie, Kafka can be seen coughing up blood. Kafka began to suffer from tuberculosis in 1917, and died on June 3, 1924.Released after Soderbergh's critically acclaimed debut Sex, Lies, and Videotape it was the first of what would be a series of low-budget box-office failures. It has though since become a cult film.Before going to the Castle, Kafka (Jeremy Irons) asks Bizzlebek (Jeroen Krabbé) to burn his manuscripts if he never came back. This is in reference of the real request Kafka asked his friend Max Brod before dying. Brod couldn't go with the request, and made Kafka's work public.The cast included at the time three Oscar winners: Jeremy Irons, Sir Alec Guinness and Joel Grey.
