Movie Info

An orphaned drifter recently released from the hospital and seeking gainful employment finds that sometimes fate can play cruel tricks on the desperate in a tightly wound tale of adultery, deception, and murder starring Peter Coyote and Lucas Black. Nat Banyon (Black) is an orphan just looking to get back on his feet after an extended convalescence in a Wyoming hospital. When by chance Nat spots a bad car accident and bravely acts to save the life of the car's eccentric driver, Herman Finch (Coyote), the grateful wheelman kindly extends an offer of work to the young drifter, with the understanding that room and board will be provided free of charge. Assigned the task of cleaning up Finch's rundown Deepwater motel in exchange for a street-worthy car, Nat sets about performing his duties while slowly becoming aware that, in this ramshackle motel, nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted.

  • Carves out unique territory -- even as it may freak out fans of genre convention.

  • Just when we think we are coming to the truth, Marfield throws a curve that shatters all of our expectations.

  • A whole lot better than most direct-to-video crime thrillers; it's just that this particular story's been done to death by this point.

  • O clima inquietante construído pelo diretor estreante, somado às boas atuações (de Black e Coyote, em particular) e ao bom roteiro (mesmo com alguns furos), transforma o filme em uma boa surpresa.

    Lucas Black is a good actor and this starts well but loses it way towards the finish and ends up being a muddled mess.

    This was probably the most boring movie I've ever seen. Good twist, but the movie was just stuffed full of unnecessary scenes that not only made it longer than it needed to be, but was super boring on top of it.

    Decent film, good twist. I almost stopped watching it, it was kinda boring for the most part but I'm glad I finished watching it.
