Starring: John Malkovich, Gary Sinise, Sam Schacht, Margaret Thomson. Written by Sam Shepard. Directed by Allan A Goldstein.

A riveting stage performance of Sam Shepard's classic play "TRUE WEST". Austin (Gary Sinise), a Hollywood screenwriter living comfortably in suburban Arizona, is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his prodigal brother Lee (John Malkovich), whose menacing demeanor and pugilistic attitude draws Austin further and further into conflict until he must finally engage his brother in an intense psychological battle for his ideals, and perhaps even his life.

 Review: "More a filmed play than a movie, as you watch this you feel as if you're really up at 2 am on a cool summer night with crickets out the window. Watching it reminded me how over-produced movies are with incidental music and camera changes every 5 seconds.
