I saw The Matador like 2 or 3 weeks ago. Pierce Brosnan is a hitman who strikes up a friendship with salesman Greg Kinnear while they're both on business in Mexico. I thought it slowed down just a bit in the middle, but the ending makes up for it.
Hopefully you can still catch it. Wish I'd mentioned this when it was newly released.
I like seeing Brosnan in non-Bond roles. Seen The Tailor of Panama? He's good there, too. That character is like the skeezy other side of the Bond coin.
