Product Description

Product Description

Off-beat crime thriller starring Joaquin Phoenix. Clay (Phoenix) witnesses his best friend kill himself after he finds out that Clay was having an affair with his wife. When Clay tries to reject the wife after this, she proves to be very difficult to get rid of - until Clay befriends demented killer Lester Long (Vince Vaughn), who murders the woman as a favour to him. After a series of bizarre misunderstandings, Clay finds himself in the frame as the killer, and has to go on the run to track down Lester and prove that he's the one responsible for all the murders around town.

In the mould of such comedies as Dogma, but with a much darker, nastier edge. This is a film which leaves you remembering one or two priceless scenes and a sense of having been in the presence of genius.
Vince Vaughn's portrayal of Lester is absolutely first class, especially the scene in which he chats up the stony faced Fed in a bar. As a guy, one feels torn between wanting her not to fall for his wiles, and yet also wanting him to succeed! Joaquim Phoenix as Clay is also excellent, giving the part the vulnerability and frustration it needs.
Overall, a fantastic film to watch late at night with some well-chosen friends. Possibly followed by Fight Club if anyone can stay awake.

you will most probably enjoy this a great deal. It's much more light hearted and easier to watch than no country for old men. Vince Vaughn is brilliant, and much youger looking than you'd expect these days. He shows his pleasure in his sadistic ways in a way that lets you grow cold to this rather handsome american in the stetson (why is that not gay in this movie?) The actor that plays Clay goes on to do Big Fish, but, even though thatis a better film, he is much better in this. I watched it without any expectations, and was genuinley surprised by the twists, despite the first 20 mins being so outrageous. I suppose this review will make me soud naeive about these kind of movies. It was a learning experience and has let me enjoy a lot more genres since (not bad as i'm now 40). So, if you want a Cohen bros film with an ending that makes some sense, Clay Pigeons is IT.

This film starts out good enough. The actings good. Vince vaughn is excellent and it's good to see him 'acting' in a proper role rather than the usual comedic roles he usually gets (although he's perfectly good in those too). The women are attractive, there's a bit of boob, it's a cool story - it's just - I don't know... for me it doesn't really hold my attention. I'm sitting here writing the review with it playing in the back ground as I've kind of lost interest in it. Save your money, it's one to watch on TV. This film doesn't really know what it is - I think that's the problem. It's kind of Kalifornia with a Benny Hill sound track - it just doesn't work. Another resounding Meh from me I'm afraid.

It's hard to categorize a movie like Clay Pigeons. The film is certainly an interesting mix of genres - part satire, comedy, and melodrama, and it gives the scoundrel the best lines, the most machiavellian aura, and the keenest temperament in the story. There's no doubt the movie, which takes place in a small Montana town, is a work of considerable originality.
The story is fraught with murder, sex, and mayhem, and contains some of the most deliciously convincing characters ever seen on film. There's the stable scout, slatternly tart, laid-back law-officer, magnetic mischief maker, and caustic cop - all of them coming together at different stages to create a maelstrom of confusion and violence.
Director David Dobkin and scriptwriter Matt Healy don't waste a lot of time on exposition: The story opens on a shooting match as best friends Earl (Fregory Sporleder) and Clay (Joaquin Phoenix) test their skills at shattering beer bottles. Earl suddenly turns on Clay, accusing him of having an affair with his sluttish wife, Amanda (Georgina Cates).
Earl eventually turns the gun on himself, partly because he's fed up with Amanda's antics, but also because he reckons that he can set it up to look like a murder, thus framing Clay. Afterwards, Clay returns to the newly widowed, but conspicuously unconcerned Amanda and is disgusted by her lack of distress.
At first Amanda tells Clay to get lost, yet deep down she still desires him. After he spurns her advances, she begins stalking him which results in terrible and fatal consequences for them both. Soon Clay is plunged into an ambivalent fellowship with the engaging visitor, Lester Long (Vince Vaughn). Lester is an enigmatic cowboy drifter, who's swollen cowboy Panama matches his towering personality.

By Albatross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 10 May 2014
Format: DVD
I’ve now seen ‘Clay Pigeons’ three times and yet I’m still not totally sure how best to describe it, or know what exactly I’ve even watched! However, at least I must like it... whatever it is.

It’s a story which doesn’t really fit easily into any particular genre. It’s not really thrilling enough to be a thriller. It doesn’t have any element of a ‘who-dun-it’ as every death is pretty much self explanatory and there’s certainly no action in it. Perhaps the best category – if this IS even a category – is ‘serial killer’ film... as there are plenty of bodies piling up here and there.

It’s about a man – Clay, played by Joaquin Phoenix – who just seems to attract death and destruction all around him. He can’t seem to go a day in his small American town without someone he knows getting killed – normally horribly. And this trend is set to get worse when he meets Lester, played by (a slim) Vince Vaughn, who also seems to just want to kill pretty much everyone in his way.

What follows isn’t your average story. There are no ‘damsels in distress’ who conveniently need to be rescued in the final act. And, talking of final acts, there isn’t the traditional stand-off between hero and villain in some dramatic place, like the top of a high-rise building. Perhaps that’s why the film has such an odd feel to it. It doesn’t really conform to any sort of blueprint. You just follow the lives of these – murderous – characters and see where it takes you.

If you like the sound of that, you should get something out of this film. It has the feel of a film-maker’s early work where he’s still allowed enough freedom not to conform to every Hollywood convention. However, a word of caution, if you’re looking for ‘relatable’ characters then you probably won’t find any here. All of them, even Clay, are hardly the sort of people you’d want to hang around with. But then that’s why you probably won’t mind seeing them bumped off one by one.
