  • Michael is on his way to Wyoming in a vintage Cadillac, where he's been promised a good steady job. But before reaching his destination, he finds himself in the town of Red Rock, where he's mistaken for a hired assassin by Wayne, a bartender plotting to kill his wife. Wayne flaunts a lucrative offer in Michael's face, which the down-and-out Michael can't resist; he accepts the money and goes along with the plan. Michael meets Wayne's wife face-to-face, but when she doubles the original offer, Michael leaves town. Just to be on the safe side, however, he leaves the sheriff a note explaining everything. On the road again, he crashes into another motorist. When the police arrive, Michael discovers Wayne is the local sheriff. Before it's all over, he's got to clear his name, come up with the money, and get out of Red Rock, which is a lot harder than it sounds. John Dahl's noir black comedy is an absolute joy to watch.

    "...Terrific film noir....RED ROCK WEST has style to burn..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "RED ROCK WEST is a diabolical movie that exists sneakily between a western and a thriller, between a film noir and a black comedy..."
