1997 ***1/2 125 mins.
This ultra-violent film from Oliver Stone is an overlong work of excess. Sean Penn plays a drifter whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. He limps it into a small town and has the day from hell, meeting with some of the craziest characters you're ever likely to see on film. It's entertaining enough, if you're into this sort of film, but it goes on way too long.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Rated R for strong violence, language, and sexuality.
