Guilty Complex
3 September 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The family man accountant Grant (Leo Grillo) travels to Los Angeles and meets the lascivious "Lolita" Marissa (Katherine Heigl) in a casino. While in the motel with Marissa, her violent ex-boyfriend Joey (Tom Sizemore) surprises them on the bed, hits Grant on the head, but he kills Joey. Grant brings Joey's body to bury in the desert Zyzzyx Road, but after digging a grave, he finds that the body is missing in the trunk of his car. Grant chases Joey with a shovel in the desert, and when he finds the man hidden in a abandoned mine, Joey discloses a secret about Marissa.

I bought "Zyzzyx Rd" on DVD without any expectations and I really liked this low-budget movie. The story begins theatrical, claustrophobic and intriguing; there are two surprising twists and a tragic conclusion after disclosing the guilty complex of Grant. I like this type of films where screenplay, direction and performances prevail over a high budget and special effects. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Estrada da Morte" ("Road of the Death")
