The scene where a rancher drops off "Doc" is filmed in a desert. The part of New Mexico, along the route from Amarillo to Raton, N.M., does not pass through any desert country. That is a rolling-prairie region, with a few small volcanic peaks in the region as you get closer to Raton. See more »
This is one of my favorite movies. A very menacing storyline if you pay attention. Danny Glover is fully believable in the role of a serial killer, Bob Goodall. His eyes and smile convey an extreme homicidal persona one second, but just friendly and laid back the next. I have never seen any actor portray this kind of character as well as Mr. Glover. One of the most convincing scenes is when he follows the attractive female clerk into the store room of a country store. His demeanor, very understated, reflects a trusted friend until he enters the room and says a few words to her and his facial expression, still subdued, completely changes in an instant, going from friend to most dangerous. Hard to describe, but his acting was superb as a psychopath and I recommend this movie.
