Set against the backdrop of a mythic "New West," a satire that follows grammatically-challenged, "user-friendly" candidate Dicky Pilager, scapegrace scion of Colorado's venerable Senator Jud Pilager, during his gubernatorial campaign. When Pilager finds that he's reeled in a corpse during the taping of an environmental political ad, his ferocious campaign manager, Chuck Raven, hires former idealistic journalist turned rumpled private detective Danny O'Brien to investigate potential links between the corpse and the Pilager family's enemies. Danny's investigation pulls him deeper and deeper into a complex web of influence and corruption, involving high stakes lobbyists, media conglomerates, environmental plunderers, and undocumented migrant workers.

john sayles delivers another great socio-political commentary wrapped in a mystery
John Sayles certainly has his act together. He comes through again with a very well crafted socio-political commentary in the guise of an entertaining intriguing murder mystery.
Danny Huston does a terrific job as a once-idealistic radical reporter who has been betrayed by 'the system'. When a murder of an illegal Mexican laborer threatens to sully the gubernatorial prospects of a dim-bulb scion of wealth and politics( the ever 'spot-on'Chris Cooper) Danny's radical loyalties are rekindled along with his intense focused investigative abilities. Hired by Cooper's campaign manager (the ever ascerbic Richard Dreyfuss)to I.D. the dead man and his killer( to protect Cooper), Huston discovers the incestuous world of land and utilities development and political seats. All the actors are perfect in their parts; cinematography and editing are memorable and tight. Sayles' films are always worth watching; this one will leave you with a very particular message that hopefully will stay with you.
