A terrific cast will hold you spellbound in this one of a kind seductive thriller from the screenwriter of The Recruit. The last thing washed-up jazz musician Nate Pool (Academy Award-nominee Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler) wanted to do was betray sinister gangster Happy Shannon (Academy-Award-nominee Bill Murray, Lost in Translation). But it may be the last thing he does unless he can deliver Lily (Megan Fox, Transformers), a beautiful and mysterious carnival sideshow attraction. The stakes can't get any higher for the two lovers as they try to elude the merciless killer who will stop at nothing to keep Lily for himself. Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy) and Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) costar in this gritty and unpredictable tale of redemption in the hard-boiled tradition of classic film noir.

The good: Megan Fox is super-gorgeous as always (so much so that she's almost painful to look at, but in a good way), and gives what may be her best acting performance, the sparse New Mexico desert locations are appropriately somber and otherworldly, and the story - while far from 'unpredictable, as the back cover claims - is certainly not your average American movie fare, this almost looks more like a European art film. No car chases, nothing explodes, no cops, no doctors, no lawyers. Not even Zombies. There are guns, however, which brings us firmly back stateside.
Always nice to see Bill Murray, and I'm sure he enjoyed this one, being so totally different from his usual roles.
The not-so-good: Can't recall a movie since some of the Marilyn Monroe ones from the 50's where a woman as young and beautiful as Megan was the object of desire of geezers as yucky as these two, which makes it a li'l hard to relate to the characters. The contrast is just too huge. Mickey Rourke used to be a heartthrob back in the 80's...holy crap, what happened?!? Drugs, booze, smokes & boxing...that it?
Yes, yes, I know it's supposed to be a sort of 'parable', but still.......
