5.0 out of 5 stars trust 'ol uncle bud...and see what happens., December 4, 2005
This review is from: After Dark, My Sweet (DVD)
This is a great adaptation of my favorite Jim Thompson novel.

Jason Patric is excellent; he projects the raw physicality of a young Brando with just the right amount of modern psychotic edge. Rachel Ward is certainly beautiful enough to inspire many a man to do something dangerous and/or stupid( the sound of her husky voice alone would bring me to my knees!) Bruce Dern, after too many yrs in semi-retirement, acts with such sleazy charm that i almost wished it were the 1970's again and he were in his full-on psycho mode.

This has to be the brightest noir ever filmed and the washed out desert locations help tremendously when it comes to building an alternative atmosphere to the old school "city noirs".

Of all the adaptations of Jim Thompsons work so far, this one is my favorite.
