Interesting actors on a working vacation in Palm Springs .....
"Slow Burn" has a confusing and not very convincing script, played out by an intriguing cast that includes Eric Roberts, Beverly D'Angelo, Dan Hedaya, Henry Gibson, and a very young Johnny Depp. There is some fabulous Palm springs scenery, a smidge of nudity, and a plot that asks a lot of tolerance from the viewer. Eric Roberts as the private investigator does quite a bit of soul searching and philosophizing, perhaps in an attempt to try and crystallize a somewhat murky plot. What starts out as a straight forward search for Raymond J. Barry's son, eventually morphs into a kidnapping and murder. The plausibility of the ever thickening plot is questionable, and the motivation leading to three murders questionable. Acceptable entertainment for fans of the fine cast but not much more. - MERK
