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>

Best Movie of 2000
27 December 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Superb acting by both Michael Madsen and Dennis Hopper would have guaranteed Oscars to them in a perfect world. Unfortunately, as can be seen from the very few comments at IMDB, no one with a good taste in movies has ever seen it.

This story has an intriguing premise, an engaging story line, and the series of events unfold in such a way that you would enjoy the ride and never bother try to figure out how it would end. The entire plot sequence involves every familiar but sinister plot device to make an exciting story, but it is the dialog between Hopper and Madsen that makes this movie tick. The interaction between the two of them is so good that you would have to see it to believe it.

Definitely one of Madsen best movies, clearly showing why he was the first choice for Travolta's part in pulp fiction. Best Picture, Best Actor Awards go to this movie. One of my favorite movies made.

One word of warning: the first five minutes of this movie while the credits roll are atrociously bad (poor acting from D grade actors) that take away 1/2* from this otherwise perfect movie. 9.5/10
