Movie Recommendation: Clay Pigeons

Clay Pigeons stars Joaquin Phoenix, Vince Vaughn, and Janeane Garofalo. A little gem from the late 1990s, it’s the story of a small town guy (Phoenix) who encounters a mysterious, charismatic new guy in town with one hell of a past (Vaughn). Garofalo stars as an FBI agent who comes to town investigating a murder or two.

I first saw this movie on campus at Texas A&M back in ’98, for free if you can imagine that. Some folks from the production company were taking it around to campuses and offering free screenings to get the word out. Indie style isn’t a bad thing, is it 🙂

It’s on Netflix Streaming Instantly if you’re interested. Ridley Scott is a producer, so I’m guessing this movie put Joaquin on the road to becoming Commodus in Gladiator (directed by Scott).
