Movie Info

Aimless Vann Siegert (Owen Wilson) takes a bizarre turn in life and becomes a serial killer, tracking down the miserable, the self-destructive and those who otherwise seem willing to die. His first victim is wretched junkie Casper (Sheryl Crow). After disposing of her body, Siegert rents a room from turbulent couple Jane and Doug Durwin (Mercedes Ruehl, Brian Cox). From there, Siegert plots his murders, gets work at the post office and falls deeper and deeper into a psychotic haze.

Audience Reviews for The Minus Man

  • Jan 27, 2012
    Something constructed back when Owen Wilson felt a need to act. The film hangs far too often.

    In this movie Owen Wilson stars as a cold-blooded serial killer who travels around the country in order to choose victims who complain about their lives and talk about all their misery. When the killer comes to a new small town where he gets to stay at a unhappily married couple, he just waits to find his next victim. He sees ghosts who taunt his concience and he later starts a relationship with a woman from his job. It was very interesting seeing Wilson in this kind of character and I think it suited him well. He expresses this kind of innocence. Very interesting movie.

    I first saw this movie in 2000, I thought it was good then. I just seen it again today for a better clarity of the movie, and I have to say it was pretty good. Low-key. But, fairly well. Great cast- Owen Wilson, Brian, Dennis Haysbert, and Janeane Garofalo.
