"The Minus Man," adapted from a novel by Lew McCreary, takes such pains to avoid narrative and verbal cliches and anything that could remotely be construed as sentimental or romantic that it feels curiously flat.

  Directed by Hampton Fancher, The Minus Man is based on the novel by Lew McCreary. The small picture received relatively strong reviews after a tour of festivals and art houses films. I actually read The Minus Man before seeing the picture. I had heard about the film and sought out the book and then finally managed to see the movie when it made it to video. THE MINUS MAN is yet another disturbing presentation which revolves around murder and social human dysfunction. In this surreal venue, the audience is able to get a glimpse of how a serial killer might think as well as the apparent common subconscious desire to eventually be caught.
