This is classic southwest film noir/romance novel brought to life. Although the plot is the standard lets kill a cuckolded, rich husband (with sex!) and take off with the new handsome stranger, the heat of this film lies in its characterizations. Don Johnson is almost perfect as the handsome stranger/used car salesman/bank robber/arsonist/white knight in shining (but obviously tarnished) armor. Jennifer Connelly’s understated desperation at her situation is almost exactly balanced by Virginia Madsen’s almost over the top vixen/gold digger. Other characters add the perfect backdrop to the action (Charles Martin Smith’s “nose sniff” scene is absolutely classic). The twists and turns of the plot and revelations makes this movie constantly interesting.It really doesn’t get much better than this–Jennifer Connelly does a rare, for her, nude scene, as does Virginia Madsen, Don Johnson, and a bevy of strippers.
