Editorial Reviews

After five years in a prison for the criminally insane, autistic Manny returns to Reno. He moves into a motel, and takes a job as a clerk at the Hotel El Cortez.

He is befriended by Popcorn, a crippled prospector who seeks his help to persuade Russo, a wealthy gambler, to invest in Popcorn's gold mine. But Manny cannot escape his past.

He is hounded by Arnie, the vengeful cop who arrested him. Arnie leans on Manny to keep tabs on Jack, a dealer who is staying at the hotel. In the meantime, Jack's girlfriend, Theda learns about the gold mine, and starts putting the moves on Manny.

Soon Manny is caught in a labyrinth that leads to a murderous triple cross.

One of the top 5 movies I have ever seen--the acting of all characters is award winning level--Lou Diamond Phillips is perfect in lead.

I really enjoyed this movie - I thought Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job. The character he plays is so different from his other movies and he nailed all of the mannerisms and twirks of this character.
