Sunday Cinematheque at the Chazen - Chicago Film Society Presents!
Red Rock West | USA | 1993 | 35mm | 98 min. Director: John Dahl
Sunday, November 3, 2019
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper, Lara Flynn Boyle A drifter (Cage) wanders into a small Wyoming town and immediately gets mistaken for a hitman hired by a wealthy rancher (J.T. Walsh) to kill his wife (Boyle). From there the twists pile up higher than a soft-serve cone in this razor sharp neo-noir from director/co-writer, Dahl. Originally slotted for direct-to-cable and home video release, the film attracted enough positive attention to warrant a theatrical release.
