"...CLAY PIGEONS' trademark is how quickly and without warning it moves from comedy to horror. Both director Dobkin and writer Healy have a nice feeling for this transition..."
Joaquin Phoenix is Clay, a young Montana man who is distressed over the suicide of his friend, the wife of whom Clay was having an affair with. When he befriends a charismatic serial killer (Vince Vaughn), death, while never touching him, can't seem to leave Clay alone. Janeane Garofolo does a snappy turn as an FBI agent in the darkly comic and surprising film.
