She was in the wrong place at the wrong time and then she was no more. Jazzman Danny Parker's wife was murdered, and Danny was powerless to prevent it. Now the heartbroken Danny is on the skids, lost among the derelict tweakers of L.A. Or is he? In Danny's world nothing – most of all Danny – is what it seems. Mystery runs deep in The Salton Sea. So does the talent behind this dreamlike thriller written by Tony Gayton (Murder by Numbers) and stylishly directed by D.J. Caruso. Val Kilmer is spellbinding as Danny, a man adrift in a sea of lowlifes (played by Vincent D'Onofrio, Anthony La Paglia and many more) – yet hovering on the razor's edge of a dangerous revenge.

If there's no art here, it's still a good yarn -- which is nothing to sneeze at these days.
