Death seems to follow Clay Birdwell, a small-town Montanan who tries to end an affair with a woman after her husband — his best friend — commits suicide. But the death toll climbs even higher when Clay forges a friendship with a serial killer.

I like the premise but for a black comedy/thriller, it's neither funny nor thrilling. And it's too long. The only things that kept me interested were marveling at how baby-faced Phoenix, Vaughn and Garofalo were and how terrible their performances were given how successful they all later became. It seems much more dated than 1998. 2.5 stars
