3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] brutal mystery-thriller....Best of all is Lynch's wicked instinct for black humour, exemplified by Harper and French Stewart as a fabulously twisted pair of cops."

3 stars out of 5 -- "[D]irector Jennifer Lynch proves she hasn't lost the surrealistic eye she exhibited in her first feature, 1993's BOXING HELENA....The fun of this picture, which at times resembles Oliver Stone's NATURAL BORN KILLERS, is the zig-zagging use of real time to create a puzzle of a mystery..."
Film Comment - 07/01/2009
"On task are a nicely paired Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond....Unsettling and nightmarishly intoxicating."
Jennifer Lynch, director of BOXING HELENA and daughter of David Lynch, helms this sci-fi-fueled thriller. Though the Santa Fe desert appears calm, it's the site of a number of gruesome murders. A trio of local police officers has found several witnesses, but soon the investigation belongs to the FBI. In this film starring Julia Ormond and Bill Pullman, nothing is as simple as it might seem.
It's been a hell of a day on the highway.
When Federal Officers Elizabeth Anderson (Julia Ormond) and Sam Hallaway (Bill Pullman) arrive at Captain Billing's office, they have three sets of stories to figure out and a string of vicious murders to consider.
One zealot cop, a strung out junkie and an eight year old girl all sit in testimony to the roadside rampage, but as the Feds begin to expose the fragile little details each witness conceals so carefully with a well practiced lie, they soon discover that uncovering ‘the truth' can come at a very big cost…
