Movie Summary

Director:
Hampton Fancher
Released:
1999
Rating:
R
When quiet and amiable Vann Siegert (Owen Wilson) drifts into town, no one suspects the evil that lies beneath the surface. When locals start to disappear, it becomes clear that an eerie subtraction is at work among the lost and lonely of this sleepy, seaside hamlet. People look toward Vann, but no one can quite put their finger on who he really is. Through it all, he carries on a surreal dialogue with imaginary detectives (Dwight Yoakam and Dennis Haysbert) who question his crimes and motives. Janeane Garofalo, Brian Cox and Mercedes Ruehl also star in this unsettling and offbeat psychological thriller that looks in the mind of a serial killer.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Eerie, quietly compelling... a fresh and mesmerizing experience...such an unsettling experience you find yourself still taking it all in well after the lights have gone up.

    Variety

    The kind of muted, anything-but-obvious psychological thriller Hitchcock would have loved.

  • 50

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Takes such pains to avoid narrative and verbal cliches and anything that could remotely be construed as sentimental or romantic that it feels curiously flat.
