Red Rock West is a 1992 neo-noir film starring Nicolas Cage as Michael Williams, a recently discharged Marine living out of his car as he roams the country looking for work. He’s a drifter who keeps to himself, without any relationships or family ties to keep him in one place for too long. His travels lead him to Red Rock, Wyoming, where he quickly comes into some easy cash. He runs into Wayne (J.T. Walsh), a local bar owner who gives Michael a bundle of money. Wayne has mistaken Michael for a hitman he hired to kill his wife, Suzanne (Lara Flynn Boyle). Michael is uninterested in killing anyone for cash, but he decides not to correct Wayne. He walks away with the money in his pocket. What Michael hopes will be a happy accident and nothing more gets complicated when the real hitman shows up and Michael has to protect Suzanne and himself from the ruthless killer, Lyle (Dennis Hopper). Red Rock West is directed by John Dahl and was well-received by audiences at several international film festivals.moreless
