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
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 »
Three cars in line in a wide shot. A brown van with family (and kids), a red/white Duster with two coke heads and a cop car with two psycho cops. Cars in middle of the frame, clouds in b.g. grasslands in foreground. Oh, the cops shoot out tires on travelers cars so they can harass and dominate them.
The tension in that shot sets the tone for the whole movie. You will see why. Ms. Lynch sure knows pacing,composition, tension, angles, wow!
That Ms. Lynch made this for only 3.5 mil is really astounding. That the movie grossed under a 100K is baffling. The movie is not sick. The CHARACTERS are. All of them. And you can't help getting caught up in their lives.
This is so well done...it hurts. And it shows what you can do on a low, low budget with professionalism. Cast, crew, lighting, sound, direction, all on the mark.
I am going to write a script so Ms. Lynch can direct it...really.
This kind of movie intrigues me like Pulp Fiction. It is character and dialog. Most films have boring dialog that moves the lame plot along. But not this hidden gem.
SEE IT ! Don't talk about it. And show it to your friends.
