Robert Altman and Sam Shepard team up to bring Shepard's insightful, multi-layered play of obsessive love to the screen. Transient cowpuncher Eddie (Shepard) pulls up at a rundown desert hotel, ready to resume his passionate love-hate relationship with onetime flame May (Kim Basinger), but an eccentric old local (Harry Dean Stanton) makes clear why their union is, and has always been, doomed. Randy Quaid, Deborah McNaughton also star. 107 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
