His murders are introduced with the killing of an asthmatic junkie.

Do you have any pie?
No pie. No pizza. No kitchen. Just booze.
You got pickles.

It's a movie that prompts the viewer to look inward rather than show gore, tension or the usual thriller ingredients (this is the reason as to why I stressed the lack of thrill). The film's approach is very laid back, focusing on the ordinariness of life that hides something terrible; the pace is everything but fast, nevertheless the story is filled with some fascinating elements that compensate for the lagging rhythm. Despite suffering from this pacing "The Minus Man" is a smart movie because it makes reflect and presses to think twice about strangers we come across; there's a lot of character depth and the audience, in spite of never being really scared, becomes more interested when learning something about the killer.
