When crooked Uncle Bud (Bruce Dern) joins the two, Fay's darker side begins to appear.

    Yet again, here I go reviewing a film from a while back('90). However, I just saw this again and had t give it a mention. Jason Patric is truly one of the better actors around but we rarely see him. In this one, he plays an ex-boxer who suffers from closed-head injury symptoms from blows to the head which can be seen by how he mumbles around due to his balance being affected. He gets mixed up with an alcoholic widow played by Rachel Ward and a burned out former lawman portrayed by another great actor by the name of Bruce Dern. These two lowlifes pull a reluctant Collie(Patric) into a kidnapping scheme in which the kid turns out to be diabetic making things all the more chaotic.

    good desert noir with jason patric as a punchy ex-fighter who's not quite as dumb as he looks

    Nice bit of modern Film Noir.

    Dull and extremely drawn out, Jason Patric was the only good thing about this film as a hardened mysterious character - definitely not a recommendation.
