Sporleder, Scott Wilson, and Vince Vieluf
It & the score!
Speaking? Clay Pigeons is an intensely creepy, slower, film
with some great actors doing some rich characters. CP
is an indie film with all the little hot buttons, and key phrases movie buffs
love to throw around like "character driven," "intriguing cinematography"
and an "ensemble cast" that'll make your eyes stare without a need to
blink. Plus, there's a big old heaping helpin' of oddball.
goes ...Clay Bidwell's (Joaquin Phoenix) out shooting bottles with his best buddy
when things get a tad bizarre. Their Sunday ends with Clay learning a thing or
two about friendships, big mouthed vixens with pure evil in their hearts, and
his education on the a to z's of planning a perfect cover-up. By sundown, his
best friend is dead and Clay may be the prime suspect unless he plays it cool.
figures things can't get much worse than that afternoon. Never say that, or even
thunk it. Now his best friend's new widow, Amanda (Georgina Cates), decides she
done like her this Clay fellow and is none too keen on his running around with
another gal.....She even makes a sultry attempt at corralling the young buck at
the local watering hole and he causes a bit of a scene by declining her feminine
offerings via a strong back hand across her lily white face.
She storms out and he's thinkin' the night's sinking into the pig slop when a
tall cowboy with a silly grin and a knack for charmin' the pants off folks asks
him to share his pool table.
new pool hall friend's a looker named Lester Long ( Vincecowboy clothes
do this man good girls Vaughn). Ol' Lester shares some common interests
with the boys; backlake fishin', chick killin', and long neck beers. Poor Clay
all he wants is his life back, but Lester's hell bent on havin' some serial killer
fun with the locals.
works are not unnoticed by the FBI and they're closing in. Agent Shelby (Janeane
Garofalo), who's followed the killing to Clay's hometown, has noticed a particular
pattern the killer has with his smokes that ultimately will prove to be his undoing.....maybe.
performances are simply wonderful. Joaquin Phoenix is complete perfection as always.
Love this guy. Janeane Garofalo is about five foot tall, and every inch is filled
with natural talent. Then there's Mr. Vaughn. Mmmmm, is that one man God's made
right. I'm going to have to use the "p" word patience whilst
I wait for this to come to dvd! Oh, yeah there's a scene between Vincent and Georgina
Cates that'll have your eyebrow straight up and erect with attention. Trust
me.....and excuse me I have to take another ice shower...Okay, primal desires
aside this fellow Vin's got real talent. He's super eerie and exact as Lester
the twinkling maniac. Can't wait to see how his career shapes up.
out and see this. It's going to be harder to find, but it'll be worth it. I've
picked up the soundtrack as well, it's great for a long drive down a dark country
Recommendation: Johnny Walker Black and Cherry Pie
