Mary Stuart Masterson,
Sentenced to death for the murder of his abusive father, 17-year-old Danny (Eric Stoltz) escapes from the cops on his way to San Quentin and hides out with Charlene (Monica Carrico), a 30-year-old prostitute who has been sending Danny love letters in jail. The duo head to Arizona so Danny can see his sister one more time, but they don't know that one of the cops Danny escaped from is hellbent on getting his revenge. Wow, this was an incredible surprise. Director Mark (HARDBODIES) Griffiths made his debut with this and it is far removed from his T&A comedy hit. This is a pretty grim and relentlessly sleazy effort that is cinematic kin to flicks like OUT OF BOUNDS. What really makes it work are the two lead performances and some really odd supporting characters who feel like they stepped out of a pulpy novel. The film also packs one hell of an ending. Carrico is the real surprise here, a spunky combination of Elizabeth Daily and Caroline Williams. There is a totally bizarre scene where she starts to get it on with her sugar daddy while wearing a Richard Nixon mask. It is a shame she didn't do any more movies. Also highly recommended for some great desert locations and if you want to ogle some great 80s decor.
