A mysterious stranger is on the hunt for his missing appendage and two bungling crooks along with one devious hotel receptionist are caught up in his dangerous machinations. Carmichael (think Captain Ahab meets Dennis Hopper) brings us into his obsessive search for what has been missing from his life since childhood. Another dazzlingly macabre tale from McDonagh, Behanding slices open the roots of fanaticism and lays open the need to be “whole” again and the contempt we have for outsiders in a post-9/11 America.
