Nice-Looking Film; Would Look Good On DVD
16 May 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I'm sorry this this was never put out on DVD and apparently got almost no notice while out on VHS. I found it to be a surprisingly good movie, one I really enjoyed. It's not super, but it's certainly worth a look, especially if you like Southwest U.S.A. scenery, and I'm shocked I am only the second reviewer of this film. What a shame.

What I really appreciated was the beautiful colors in here and a pretty clean movie, language-wise. There is no nudity, either, so why this is rated "R" on the back of the video box is a complete mystery to me. That has to be a mistake.

What the film could have used was a bit more action, especially in the middle of the film when it begins to drag a bit with the romance, but it was still an intriguing. This was my first look at Brooke Adams since the 1978 film of Days Of Heaven, one of my all-time favorites. Adams lost her interesting and youthful look (age will do that!) but still looked okay. The male lead, Bryan Brown, has a rugged face which was perfect for the New Mexico terrain in this story.

Speaking of "Brown," the brown hues in this film are awesome, from dark to golden. I have never seen so many shades of that color together and it looks fantastic. I would love to see this movie on DVD.

Story-wise, it is a nice low-key movie most of the way except for a violent, shocking ending.
