Movie Review: Salton Sea

A rough sea ahead
The Salton Sea is a very dark undertaking, ostensibly about the cringe-inducing lives of a group of crystal meth users. You're pretty well soaked in heinous drug lifestyles before the movie takes a complete left turn and proves to be not about wastrels but about a man's personal search for a pair of killers. That's all we can tell.

Val Kilmer stars in the film as a lowlife tweaker who is also a police snitch. Peter Sarsgaard plays his brainless but loyal friend, Deborah Kara Unger his abused neighbour. Also in the cast are Vincent D'Onofrio as a terrifying drug baron, Anthony LaPaglia and Doug Hutchison as cops. There are cameo appearances from Luis Guzman, B.D. Wong, Danny Trejo and other such actors whose mere presence in any story is almost always a good sign.
