As good as if not better than the Coen brother's Fargo, Red Rock West is definitely worth the time. Down and out Nicholas Cage plays a guy who enters the town looking for work who enters a lonely solitary and gloomy bar where he is mistaken for the hitman hired by the barman, who is also the sheriff, to kill his wife. Cage takes the money and approaches the sherrif's wife informing her what her husband has planned for her.It is from here that Cage becomes trapped by the small town, unable to leave and escape the deceit and lies............things get real messy, however, when the real hitman, Dennis Hopper, comes to town!!
Littered with twists and wonderful performances Red Rock West is a must see. The film is superbly delivered, well constructed and wonderfully written. The portrayal of the town as a lonely, deserted, stark and desolate place in the middle of nowhere is particularly effective and is complemented well by Cage's acting.
Just lay back and watch, if you liked Fargo, you're gonna love this!

Red Rock West is directed by John Dahl who also co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Rick. It stars Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper, Lara Flynn Boyle, J. T. Walsh and Timothy Carhart. Music is by William Olvis and cinematography by Marc Reshovsky.

When a promised job in Wyoming fails to materialise on account of an injury sustained in combat, Michael Williams (Cage) drifts into the town of Red Rock and is mistaken in a bar for a hitman hired to kill an unfaithful wife. Tempted by the high cash on offer, Michael plays along and promptly finds himself in a web of intrigue from which escape is looking unlikely...

Welcome To Red Rock/You Are Now Leaving Red Rock.

The studio didn't know what to do with it, a neo-noir flavoured with contemporary Western spices. Put out on cable in America and thriving on its limited release in Europe, it started to gain a cult fan-base. More so after a theatre in the Frisco Bay area started showing it and it made considerable coinage. Today it still remains more of a cult piece than anything else, which while it deserves more accolades and exposure, is still kind of nice for the fans, because it's like we have our own little neo-noir treasure all to ourselves.

Red Rock West is essential for the neo-noir heads and well worthy of inspection by the average modern day crime film fan. Plot wise it's a bit, shall we say iffy? Yet the twists, turns and characterisations are so deftly constructed and performed, it matters not a jot. Cage's ex-marine is an honest and decent guy who whilst down on his luck - punished for his honesty - finds himself in a vortex of mystery and murder that he can't escape from.

Beyond the incredible direction, the wonderful script and the spectacular acting, the most important thing to understand about this movie is that it's a film about `Karma' and `Luck.'

In this movie, Nicholas Cage's character is honest to a fault. And on top of that, he is also what Dennis Hopper describes as "One Lucky Son of a *****."

In the US Marine Corps, he survived a Truck Bomb that killed 114 other troops. But of course, in this movie there is always bad luck to balance out every good turn. So every time that Nicholas Cage's character manages to escape, to win or to `Get the Upper Hand,' the Universe decides to come along and to kick him squarely in the teeth.

At the beginning of the film, it's his uncharacteristic dishonesty that places Nicholas Cage in mortal danger. And in the end, it is his honesty that eventually breaks him out of this cycle. Because in the words of `G'Kar' in the TV series `Babylon 5;'

"If you face the Universe with good intentions in your heart, it will reflect those intentions and reward your intent. It just doesn't always do so in the way that you expect."

So even though I don't believe in `Luck,' `Karma' or any kind of `Grand Design,' this film is a wonderful affirmation of the idea that good things will happen to good people...eventually.

I never thought I would use this expression to describe a movie, but I feel more than confidenet using it for Red Rock West. I first saw this movie in 1994 and have done my utmost to convert others since then. Without giving too much away, Nicholas Cage plays the hapless Michael Williams, a man who, through a case of mistaken identity, is presented with an offer which is just too good to refuse. But just when you think he is going to live happily ever after....the plot thickens. And it keeps thickening - every 15 minutes - so keep up! This is engrossing, edge-of-the-seat stuff. Infinitely better than Dahl's The Last Seduction. Love him or hate him, Cage is excellent in this.

Format: DVD
A basically decent drifter (Nicolas Cage) lands in the tiny town of Red Rock, Wyoming, looking for work. When he stops in the bar, the bar owner (J. T. Walsh) asks why he took so long and asks him to step in the back office so they can discuss the job. Cage plays along, then discovers the work is to kill the bar owner's wife. He takes the money, drives out to the ranch to warn the wife (Laura Flynn Boyle), and starts to leave town. Problems arise and he returns to town in time to witness the real hit man (Dennis Hopper) arrive. Things go downhill for the Cage character after that.

This is an excellent, convoluted, well-acted and offbeat mystery. Funny, too. Cage never knows what's happening, but everybody else assumes he does. Dennis Hopper again plays a charming semi-psycho but he hadn't patented the style yet so it seems fresh. J. T. Walsh was a great character actor who died young. He's outstanding as the bar owner...who also happens to be the sheriff. He has one or two other secrets as well. And if Boyle doesn't rev your engine, you may need a tune up. She's more ruthless than the lot of them.

The DVD transfer is clean and clear.
