Minus Man, The


USA 1999, 107 minutes
Dir. Hampton Fancher
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Independent


Aroview: Comic actor Owen Wilson is sort-of cast against type as an impassive, child-like drifter with a penchant for random poisonings, settling into small town dysfunction in the Pacific Northwest, where he is taken in by a childless couple and gets a job as a postman. Consistent with the manner of its odd, detached protagonist, the introspective detail of the novel translates as a tad listless and self-consciously quirky, but it does offer up a curious alternative as a thriller that explores a 'non-violent' sociopathy. With Mercedes Ruehl, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Cox, Sheryl Crow, Dwight Yoakam and Dennis Haysbert. Footnote: The director was the screenwriter of Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER.
