the whole movie rests on the interaction of the two characters and the appeal of the stars who embody them
A downbeat, elegiac mood piece and character study about angry, damaged people whose lives are as desolate as the dusty West Texas landscape they inhabit.
A nice, heavy movie, if a bit depressing.
Haunting film, with unexpectedly great supporting performances by Caan and Paltrow
A captivating thriller with three solid performances
The film starts better than you've heard, but soon gets worse than you predicted.
The best film of 1993. Seriously. Great breakthrough performance by Gwyneth Paltrow also.
Dry and a bit slow, but there are a few rewards to be found.
