Seeing Dennis Hopper, Gina Gershon, and Dominique Swain (Face/Off, Lolita) is reason enough to like this neo-noir thriller. A bonus is David Murray (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, who plays an ultra-religious scumbag.
What appeared to be a simple case of a girl wanting to keep a drifter in town for her own pleasure, turned into a complex web of deceit and double-crossing that blew up because someone was thrust in the middle.
It was fascinating to watch, but more fascinating to see Hopper as a burned out thief, Gershon as a real bitch, and Swain playing everyone against each other.
