There are some towns you should just keep driving through. With five dollars to his name, Nicolas Cage stops off to have a drink in the remote town of Red Rock. There Cage is mistaken for a hitman and paid money by J.T. Walsh to go kill his wife. Out at the ranch, Cage meets his "victim" Laura Flynn Boyle, who turns the tables by offering him double to kill her husband. Hoping to take the money and run, Cage makes a dash for the border only to be caught by Walsh and meet up with the real killer, Dennis Hopper. Terrific film noir drama in this indie treasure.
