Handguns figure in the intertwining lives of nine people. Warren shoots his wife Helen's lover and his defense is that he thought he was shooting an intruder. She leaves him; the lawyer helps her get a job with a nutty, reclusive computer wizard who waves a pistol about, sometimes at Helen. Tennel, the computer geek's ex-assistant, lands a video-store job and is smitten by Annabel Lee, an aggressive street kid who likes complaining about men to her pistol-packing psychotic brother to set him off. In secret, Annabel starts an affair with the lawyer, who has both a pistol and a gay lover, who becomes jealous. He has a pistol too. A cool (and armed) cop stays on Warren's tail. Written by
It's an interesting film...there's a neat line in the film paying tribute to "Pulp Fiction," and while it's nowhere near as good as "Pulp," it's definitely a nice "popcorn" kind of film. The film definitely tries to use Tarantino's interlocking character paths technique to spin a dramatic narrative on gun violence, but some of the interaction is obviously forced. For example, there's a scene in a video store with four characters interacting, and then almost immediately after, there's a scene in a bar with four characters interacting, one from the previous scene. I'm not crazy about Gary Sinise's thinly veiled "Bill Gates" character, but the other roles all seem to be strong characters that stand on their own. A movie worth watching on a nice, rainy night.
