“A diabolical movie that exists sneakily between a western and a thriller, between a film noir and a black comedy.” – Roger Ebert
Unemployed ex-marine (Nicolas Cage) is mistaken for a hitman by a local by owner. Playing along, he takes the man’s money and tells the intended victim, the man’s wife, only to be asked to kill her husband instead. While weighing his options, the real killer (Dennis Hopper) turns up looking for his money.
