When Clay pushes the truck with the dead guy in it over the cliff, the truck eventually explodes in a huge fireball. But later, when we cut back to the police investigating the incident, the truck is not charred by fire at all. See more »
Edgy psychological thriller with great script, comedic touch and strong sound track.
A story of double-double-cross and serial killing in Montana. From the first shot the film engages and won't let go. Joaquin Phoenix, Janeane Garofalo and Vince Vaughn take us on a trip that's simultaneously entertaining and harrowing.
Great music by John Lurie (aka Lounge Lizard, Down by Law, etc.), and featuring oldies that carry the merciless momentum of the film. Ridley Scott co-produced.Cinematography is evocative of My Own Private Idaho (it was filmed in Utah).
Director David Dobkin has his own strong signature, particularly his deft pulling together of the characters and the light comedy, but there were also elements of Jarmusch and Van Sant. Fine cast and an excellent film.
