★★★☆☆You've got to hand it to Arrow Video for assembling an increasingly bizarre collection of lost obscurities for new generations to enjoy. One such oddity is Paul Bartel's Lust in the Dust (1985), a film which almost defies description.

A lone cowboy (Hunter) and a good-time showgirl (Divine) drift into the New Mexican town of Chili Verde, bringing with them a whole lot of trouble. For in this town is hidden a legendary treasure - but its inhabitants don't take kindly to strangers.
