Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 08/23/1990
"...A hot-wired crime thriller that captures Thompson's flair for hard action, malicious wit and fevered eroticism..."
New York Times - 08/24/1990
"...A brisk, entertaining contemporary melodrama..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/24/1990
"...Patric demolishes the conventions of the role with breathtaking skill. He is controlled, subtle, many-layered, physical in ways that tell us everything about the character and intuitively right..."

Plot Synopsis:

A brooding adaptation of the unforgiving words of writer Jim Thompson.
Ex-boxer Kid Collins escapes from a sanitarium in which he was remanded for killing an opponent in the ring. He stops in a bar for drinks and meets a sexy, older woman named Fay. Though at first she rebuffs Collins, she later welcomes him into her liquor-fueled life... and her bed.
Fay later introduces "Collie" to a strange man she knows named Uncle Bud. Apparently a two-bit con artist, Uncle Bud has greater ambitions: he plans to abduct a small boy and needs a little muscle -- namely, Collie -- to make his scheme work.
Despite Collie's initial reluctance to participate in the kidnapping, he is soon the one calling all the shots.
