Director: Oliver Stone
Cast: Sean Penn, Jennifer Lopez and Claire Danes

Director Oliver Stone takes a vacation from his usual weighty fare for a quick little neo-noir. Still two hours long, the frantic film finds a conniving loser (Penn) stranded in a tumbleweed town; every time he tries to leave, he's thwarted by some troubling circumstance or eccentric local. Pure Stone but without the conspiracy theory.
