4.0 out of 5 stars Modern day film noir, August 25, 2009
This review is from: After Dark, My Sweet (DVD)
It is difficult to imagine that his film was made nearly 20 years ago. Jason Patric plays a young man, former boxer who is emotionally damaged. He hussles his way into people's lives and then simply runs away. During one of his stints, he comes across beautiful woman, a widow, who offers him a shelter in exchange for some handy work around her house.

It does not take long before it is apparent that a woman and her friends have agenda on how to create enough wealth so they do not have to worry about the money during the old days. They are about to use ex-boxer as a tool to get to the goal. Erotic tension rises but so does desire for control. No one seem to be what they pretend to be and that is when film truly reaches its peak.

Jason Patrick gives a fantastic performance. He has a true swagger of a boxing champion. His eyes reflect his mood of the moment. At that point he taks over the big screen and the course of the movie. It is one of the films made in film noir fashion that draws audiences into destinies of the protagonists. There are no winners at the end of the story and that is the beauty of the movie.
