Outside a mountain town grappling with a series of abductions and murders, Paul (Antonio Banderas), a reclusive writer, struggles to start what he hopes will be a career-saving screenplay. After a tense encounter at a diner with a drifter named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Paul offers Jack a place to stay-and soon the edgy, demanding Jack muscles his way into Paul's work and the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.
A real thriller. A definitely "must watch" film. Banderas is OK but overshadowed by Myers who puts in a great performance. The story itself takes a number of very surprising turns. Many times during the movie you think you have it all figured out, then BANG! I hope no reviewer gives spills the beans on it.
