In this Robert Altman period drama, Bowie (Keith Carradine) is an escaped convict who embarks on a crime spree with fellow former prisoners Chicamaw (John Schuck) and T-Dub (Bert Remsen). While in hiding between bank robberies, Bowie meets a young woman named Keechie (Shelley Duvall), and the two quickly fall in love.

    Weird. But good! The Bowie character is especially enjoyable.

    A minor work for Altman but still another exceptional film in his genre experimentation period.
    Graham J Super Reviewer

    Based on the same book that 'They Live By Night' was, but I enjoyed this version a little more. Both Carradine and Duvall are very likeable. Great overlooked Altman.
