CastAlec Baldwin Fred Ward Jennifer Jason Leigh Nora Dunn
NotesQuite brutal but off-beat crime story. Baldwin is good as a psychopathic murderer and thief. Jason Leigh plays a rather dippy young woman who joins up with him unaware of his homicidal tendencies. Then Fred Ward appears as a hackneyed cop who has his badge stolen by Baldwin. This badge allows Baldwin to pretend to be an undercover cop. Not wholly successful but well worth watching. The tone has to be off-centre with a touch of black comedy otherwise we'd immediately lose any empathy with Baldwin's character. There's a blind black guy who is a stool pigeon for the cop. And a robber in store is lame. The robber even loses some of his fingers and his dad sues the state.
