Two FBI agents attempt to clarify the murders occurring in a desolate region. They approach the witnesses of the latest incident with the help of the local police. All of them hide something and all have wildly different stories to tell.
Grisly murders occur in a small town. Two FBI agents arrive, set up their cameras in three interview rooms, and set up interviews of three survivors: a girl of about nine, a foul-mouthed cop with a bandaged hand, and a young woman of about 20 who uses drugs. Each tells their story as the male FBI agent listens and watches from a separate room: the girl draws for and talks to the female agent, the local chief interviews the injured cop, and two officers interview the young woman. As they tell their stories, some of which are inaccurate and self-serving, we see what actually happened the day before. Can the agents or anyone else put the pieces together? Written by
Billy Burke was originally cast as the character Sam Hallaway. Days before filming was to begin, he dropped out of the film. Lynch family friend Bill Pullman was then cast to replace him. See more »
The closing credits state that the cast is listed in alphabetical order, but Daryl Haney's name is listed after Kent Harper, Michael Ironside, and Pell James (despite the fact that it precedes all of them alphabetically). See more »
appalling garbage from David Lynch's talentless daughter
How on earth does this sort of rubbish get made? Jennifer Lynch rips off her dad David's style without any substance whatsoever, and the appallingly stupid plot (that itself is a rip-off of Natural Born Killers) makes you feel sorry for the actors. Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond have clearly fallen on very hard times if this is the sort of junk they're reduced to working in - not that their performances are any better than the script, which is written like a bad student film, though on this evidence it's doubtful that David Lynch's talentless daughter would actually get accepted into any self-respecting film school. Let's hope the negative gets lost by the lab.
