The late Sam Shepard stars in this moving adaptation of his own play as a cowboy visiting ex-lover (and current half-sister) Kim Basinger at a Mojave Desert motel. Stanton is perfectly cast as the Old Man, a spectral presence hovering at the edge of the action. Released by Cannon, this dreamy slow-burn drama is a highlight of Altman’s unjustly maligned ’80s period.
