Very enjoyable episode with excellent acting by Bill Paxton and Bud Cort
2 December 2010 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Loud, arrogant, and obnoxious criminal Trout (Bill Paxton in peak raucous and rowdy let it all hang out wildman form) feels a strong kinship with and develops an immediate deep affinity for nerdy, mild-mannered, and soft-spoken serial killer Wax (a wonderfully quirky portrayal by Bud Cort). However, the friendship between these two radically contrasting, but equally dangerous lunatics falls apart after the pair picks up a brash prostitute. Writer/director Thomas Baum has a field day exploring the freaky and unhealthy close bond between the colorful crazies, builds a good deal of tension, adds a few nice touches of wickedly amusing dark humor, and caps things off with a perfectly grim ending complete with a genuinely haunting closing shot. Paxton and Cort display a very loose, natural, and utterly convincing screen chemistry and play off each other exceptionally well, with Paxton's restless energy and cocky swagger a particular treat to watch throughout. Jonelle Allen lends able support as sassy street walker Sunny. Reynaldo Villalobos' sharp cinematography gives this episode a neat glossy look. The shivery score by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban hits the spine-tingling spot. One of this show's most offbeat and entertaining half hours.
