      Faye B I simply went ape when I saw this movie ! Dennis Hopper was excellent ! Bàrbara Hersey reminded me of someone I knew. And Ed Harris to me is & always will be a " Hunk" to me & I do mean "Hunk" to the extreme, WOW what a man Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Disturbing look at racism, with a nasty performance from Hopper. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Good but not great work by Dennis Hopper and Ed Harris. They try but the script does not provide them with enough to work with. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member So this is what someone's view of racism in the South looks like? This movie is a failure on every level. All of the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member This film was ignored when it was released & I am unsurprised to see it only has 44 ratings. I'm not sure that it's even available in most DVD libraries but if you see it, grab a copy. But, be warned. This is a seriously disturbing film with one of the worst sexual violence scenes I have ever witnessed. If you thought Hopper was compelling as Frank Booth in Blue Velvet then you are in for a big dose of deja-vu. Hopper's racist, violent, sociopathic loansharking character is every bit as frightening & every bit as compelling. Ever wondered what Frank Booth would be like if he had real social power? A wife? Here is the opportunity to find out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Well put together. It does so much right technically in front and behind the camera. So where's the problem? Well...for all it's strengths in the storytelling, it's too ugly a film to be considered entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
