  • A brooding adaptation of the unforgiving words of writer Jim Thompson. Ex-boxer Kid Collins escapes from a sanitarium in which he was remanded for killing an opponent in the ring. He stops in a bar for drinks and meets a sexy, older woman named Fay. Though at first she rebuffs Collins, she later welcomes him into her liquor-fueled life... and her bed. Fay later introduces "Collie" to a strange man she knows named Uncle Bud. Apparently a two-bit con artist, Uncle Bud has greater ambitions: he plans to abduct a small boy and needs a little muscle -- namely, Collie -- to make his scheme work. Despite Collie's initial reluctance to participate in the kidnapping, he is soon the one calling all the shots.

    "...A hot-wired crime thriller that captures Thompson's flair for hard action, malicious wit and fevered eroticism..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...A brisk, entertaining contemporary melodrama..."
    New York Times

    "...Patric demolishes the conventions of the role with breathtaking skill. He is controlled, subtle, many-layered, physical in ways that tell us everything about the character and intuitively right..."
    Los Angeles Times
