Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 01/09/1992
"...The film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama..."
New York Times - 12/22/1991
"...Directed in a terse, edgy style....[Patric and Leigh] are able to make Jim and Kristin as grimly memorable as the drug culture that threatens to engulf them both..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/10/1992
"...The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh..."
Total Film - 07/01/2003
"...It's good stuff....Patric and Leigh shine..."

Product Description:

Jim and Kristen are undercover narcotics officers, partners who become lovers - and addicts - as they infiltrate the local drug scene in order to bring down a suspected drug lord. But as their relationship intensifies and their drug use turns to abuse, the fine line between the good guys and the bad guys becomes as blurry as their drug-induced vision.

Plot Synopsis:

In the 1970s, a narcotics agent and his rookie female partner go undercover to bust Texas drug dealers. Cut off from everyone around them, the two become intensely dependent on one another and have difficulty resisting the temptations of the world they are there to subvert. Soon their drug usage becomes more than a cover, and they rapidly descend into the world of full-blown addiction.


Production Notes:

  • Color by Deluxe.
