This movie starring Jack Nicholson was released between two of his movies which were both heavily Oscar nominated, Reds (1981) and Terms of Endearment (1983). However, this film was not nominated for any Academy Awrads and was not successful at the box-office either. See more »

This has got to be one of Jack Nicholson's finest acting jobs. His portrayal of an emotionally unsatisfied Border Patrol agent stuck trying to find peace within himself is riveting to watch. The soundtrack is outstanding also with that simple truth " you can lose more than you hope to gain on the other side of the border".
