      Movie Info

      In this Robert Altman period drama, Bowie (Keith Carradine) is an escaped convict who embarks on a crime spree with fellow former prisoners Chicamaw (John Schuck) and T-Dub (Bert Remsen). While in hiding between bank robberies, Bowie meets a young woman named Keechie (Shelley Duvall), and the two quickly fall in love. A life of crime doesn't sit well with Keechie, however, so she and Bowie try to settle down, but the law is determined to bring him to justice.

        Weird. But good! The Bowie character is especially enjoyable.

        A minor work for Altman but still another exceptional film in his genre experimentation period.

        Based on the same book that 'They Live By Night' was, but I enjoyed this version a little more. Both Carradine and Duvall are very likeable. Great overlooked Altman.
