Storyline

Henry, an uptight businessman who sometimes acts with questionable ethics, nevertheless rejects Ron, a scam artist who wants a partner. Ron won't let up and finds a lever to blackmail Henry, whose daughter Gina has killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run car accident. To protect Gina, Henry disposes of Ron, but a murderous sociopath witnesses this crime. Henry and this stranger bond in an odd way, telling stories about their childhoods. Henry makes a deal with the stranger, helping to get rid of the body of one of the stranger's victims. Will this act seal a bargain between the two men and get Henry off the hook, or will the stranger threaten Henry and Gina? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Freaky but enjoyable
28 August 2005 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on late night television and really liked it. I wanted to find out more about this thriller and ended up here. The only reason I started watching it was because Dennis Hopper was in it, but was quickly drawn into it. I realize, from the comments I've read, that lots of people didn't think it was very good, and that surprised me. I liked the plot and enjoyed the acting of Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen. I found it quite interesting how they were filmed while riding in the car talking. It gave a surreal and rather paranoid feel to the scenes. Sure, not all of the supporting cast are overwhelmingly wonderful when it comes to acting, but they're not on screen enough to really be a bother. I adored the ending. All I'll say is; it's a nice bit of a twist. I thought it was quite clever. I truly don't understand why so many people dislike this movie. I recommend it. It certainly kept my interest.
