After staging a daring daylight robbery at a local bank, he receives an alibi from an unexpected ally: Dolly Harshaw (Virginia Madsen), a sexy and mysterious local woman who has her own plans for him. But when Harry falls for another beautiful woman (Jennifer Connelly), he incurs Dolly's wrath and finds himself caught in a maze of jealousy, betrayal and murder in which escape is impossible... and danger is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Surprisingly good - The Hot Spot review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert

This exceeded my expectations, making good viewing. It is well filmed, well acted, and the music good. The plot is rather variable, with some rather unbelievable elements, but overall the quality of the film tends to compensate for this.

The plot revolves around the machinations of three people, who are evil in different ways: Frank Sutton, Harry Maddox and Dolly Harshaw. Frank is torn between Dolly and Gloria Harper, and his relationship with the two women progresses in very different ways. With Gloria it is an innocent romance, whilst with Dolly it is sex. Frank's propebsity for violent and immoral actions lead to a downward spiral, but the outcome is unclear until the end.

There are a couple of un-necessarily violent and unpleant scenes, which could be unsettling, but otherwise above average for this genre.
