From the legendary Dennis “Easy Rider” Hopper comes the 1990 erotic neo-noir The Hot Spot starring Don Johnson (Cold in July), Virginia Madsen  (Red Riding Hood) and Jennifer Connelly (Noah).

In the grand noir tradition, Harry Maddox (Johnson) is a handsome drifter who is not above larceny to make ends meet. After staging a daring daylight robbery at a local bank, he receives an alibi from an unexpected ally: Dolly Harshaw (Madsen), a sexy and mysterious local woman who has her own plans for him. But when Harry falls for another beautiful woman (Connelly), he incurs Dolly’s wrath and finds himself caught in the genre’s usual maze of jealousy, betrayal and murder…

Lustrously shot by Ueli Steiger (The Day After Tomorrow) and co-starring William Sadler (Freeheld), Charles Martin Smith (The Untouchables) and Jack Nance (Eraserhead), The Hot Spot also features outstanding music from such blues and jazz legends as John Lee Hooker, Miles Davis and Taj Mahal.
