Enticingly bringing two singular actresses together, Rafelson provides a rare studio-picture showcase for Theresa Russell; she plays a chameleon who marries for money, offs the husbands, and absconds with the inheritance. As federal investigator Debra Winger picks up her trail, sexual tension complicates the battle of wits. The piquant supporting cast includes James Hong, Dennis Hopper, Diane Ladd, Terry O’Quinn, Lois Smith, and even David Mamet.
