The quirkiest thriller since Blood Simple, RED ROCK WEST stars Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper and Lara Flynn Boyle in an offbeat mystery about an average guy who is mistaken for a professional hit-man. Dead tired and flat broke after driving 1,200 miles, Michael, an unemployed Texan (Cage), walks intoa tavern in tiny RED ROCK WEST, Wyoming, and is immediately offered a job. There's just one problem: the owner thinks Micheal is a hit-man, and the "job" is murdering the owner's wife (Boyle). Just when Mike decides to take the money and run, the real hit-man (Hopper, sporting a homicidal Texas twang) arrives, ready to do the job right. Full of playful twists and sexy turns, RED ROCK WEST is a perfectly plotted game of cat-and-mouse that will keep you guessing until the final, shocking shot.
