"Frailty" by Yojimbo

A man walks into the offices of the FBI and declares that he knows the identity of a high profile serial killer, and sets about convincing the sceptical agent in charge by recounting the events of his life.

Adam - "Well you haven't even heard me out yet and already you doubt me." If only it had a better score and technical camera angles then I would have given this a higher rating. The kids, McConaughey and Paxton we...
