This 1991 little-known and underrated HBO crime/noir film isn't great but the best parts is seeing a young,sexy,busty,bosomy Marcia Gay Harden wearing a super-tight,form-fitting,figure-flattering,bust-accentuating orange v-neck button-down sweater getting abducted and kidnapped by the evil gang of thugs out to blackmail her lover played by a pre-Jurassic Park Sam Neil. Later we see her tied to a bed bound and gagged and her huge breasts are sticking out and she is molested and groped while tied to a chair by one of the demented kidnappers. Hot and steamy finale with Marcia Gay Harden just about to be raped and penetrated in the belly with a knife before her being killed and her body disposed of after thug slowly cuts open her tight sweater and bra exposing Marcia's spectacular breasts as she lays helpless and bound and gagged with a priceless damsel-in-distress look of fear and terror in her eyes just before she is rescued in the nick of time by Sam Neil and Armand Assante.

I tread into this review with reservations as I did not and could not believe for a second the affair between the Neill and Harden characters. I will give allowances for this being an older HBO TV production, and I agree with the other reviewer that the Junkman character needed serious reworking, I found the entire gay sadist angle far too disruptive - on the other hand as a narrative catalyst the writer had to find something so heinous that even his fellow prisoners were willing to do anything to revenge themselves on him. Fine, make him a sadist, just leave it at the ordinary garden variety sadist - or - an unrepentant racist that no one can stomach. Again, to get that angle the writer is in danger of also revolting the audience.

But that is an aside; is there a reason to watch this film? For Harden and Assante fans yes; but, for anyone devoted to Sam Neill? Well, talk about mis-casting. It is almost as if this were two different films in two different genres; one gritty and a bit of low rent Panic in Needle Park (for Harden/Assante) and the other a cultural crime caper/comedy closer to a Fish Called Wanda (for Harden/Neill)! So which movie did I like? There were positives for both films (sorry but there are two films here) and it became surreal when the two try to blend, or just overlap if you will. Neill seems to have known he was in on an absurdist take on the stereotype of the law-abiding lawyer and could barely keep from laughing through some of his lines (I particularly liked his abrupt profanity during a phone call in front of his clients, an elderly grandma type and her son or grandson). He even explodes into a near comic hysteria when he has to remind the Assante character that he is a tax paying citizen and lawyer for crying out loud!

I dont know why this film is so hard to find. It is a great film, a style they do NOT do anymore, and with Assante and Sam Niel, it should be everywhere!!

Director Larry Elikann is a man of contradiction. He can tear your heart out with Mare Winningham as a homeless mother in God Bless the Child, but he also has an affinity with Armande Assante since he has used him so many times. Assante's macho swagger and don't-mess-with-me attitude may be Elikann's definition of masculinity but unfortunately in this HBO TVM either the director allows or insisted on Assante mangling his lines so that he is mostly unintelligible. I suppose real men like Assante and his ilk don't need to say much but this is definitely an obstacle to motivation, and his performance comes across as manically mannered. The extremity of Assante's act has an odd if not downright offensively homophobic parallel in Elikann's representation of his gay men as predatory prison inmates or black market peddlers. The first can be rationalised by men's need for sexual release, and the second as reckless playfulness, or one can take these portrayals seriously and not be amused. The setup here is that Assante has antagonised The Junkman in prison by refusing to be his "punk" so in retaliation the Junkman has his cohorts on the outside blackmail Assante when he is released by making a hostage of his former girlfriend, Marcia Gay Harden, now attached to Sam Neill. Since it doesn't look like The Junkman is going to be paroled anytime soon, you might wonder how much of an influence he can make from prison, but that given is probably explained by his gang all being pretty boys. Thankfully the kidnapping of Harden is delayed so that we have time to appreciate the casting against type, especially of Neill, as a bedroom stud and man who uncovers his own violent impulses.Read more ›
