Storyline

Esteban, a mysterious figure involved in a drug deal of some kind, arrives in a quiet desert town.

While Gere tries to track down Esteban's whereabouts, the town's sheriff is also starting to get suspicious about the stranger's activities. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

potential classic
22 September 2003 | by (ny-vt) – See all my reviews

This has all the makings of a classic but for the gratuitous violence and some unnecessary type casting. The two best roles belong to Chris Sarandon and Peter Coyote's partner. Sarandon's is the pivotal performance that holds the film together and gives it its compelling quality. It's a strong, human, and very unusual role, which would have been made even more convincing if Hopper and Hemmingway were fuller, more serious, and less stereotypical (both have good moments, though). Despite its weaknesses, this is still a good find--if over the top automatic weapon fire doesn't spoil it for you).
