The feature-directing debut of actor Kiefer Sutherland, this Tarantino-esque road movie begins with a drug heist gone sour and a falling-out among thieves on the run. Curtis (Sutherland) is the purported brains of the gang, a trigger-happy thug who makes the mistake of

blowing away an undercover cop during the robbery. That brings the wrath of the law-enforcement establishment down on the gang, which includes brooding ex-con Raymond (Vincent Gallo), his girlfriend Addy (Kim Dickens) and Marcus (Mykelti Williamson), a man who isn't what he seems. With the law

close on their trail, the thieves hijack an RV that comes complete with hostages -- ordinary people Gordon (Kevin Pollak) and Donna (Grace Phillips) -- and they career around the Southwest, heading for the fateful title town. Meanwhile, an intriguing chemistry develops between Gordon and his

captors: He starts to identify with them, much to Donna's dismay. Throw in Rod Steiger as a Las Vegas crime lord and Martin Sheen as a mysterious hit man known only as "Sir," and you have the makings of a smart, intricate movie that entertains while respecting the intelligence of its audience.

With a little word of mouth, it could turn into a bona fide sleeper.
