Mini Driver is a looker. She keeps the movie "cooking" as the central character through many unexpected turns. An enigmatic desert rat, she has been searching the hot dry Mexico desert alone for years, looking for the long lost family jewels. Needless to say they eventually turn up, but in the wrong hands.
The story line is a bit cumbersome and convoluted, but nothing to get upset about. I think the film requires that you suspend your disbelief for the duration. If it is reality you want, go find it elsewhere. I see it for what it really is: an age-old sourdough yarn like those spun around the campfire by the master storytellers of the age before television. That's pure entertainment, in my book.
Trina (Minnie Driver) is treasure hunting at any cost. We see why through a series of flashbacks. Diamonds exchange hands a few times.
This film stands on it's own as a slow paced (which gives sagacity) interaction of cunning minds in a desolate area vying for a prize more important than the other person. You have seen it before and you will see it again; so sit back and enjoy this variation.
after watching THE BLACKLIST, i've become a huge spader groupie, so i've started following all his films. so, i read he's in this one, right?
and i start watching. but they're wrong - he's not in it. ok, wait. look closer at the little squinty guy who talks funny............omg, it's spader!
(i even checked IMDB to make sure)
the movie was ok, but a hardly recognizable james was exceptional, as always. weird, always quirky, a bit crazy, and grand fun to watch!

Just like the title, it was slow but it had its moments! I enjoy Minnie Driver's acting but I bought it because of Stuart Wilson who as usual, does such a superb job! Read morePublished on November 8, 2001 by Carolyn Downing
