The Hot Spot


Released on the cusp of the 90s boom of erotic thrillers, The Hot Spot, directed by Dennis Hopper, is drenched in sweat, blood and tears, it has everything you would want from a Neo Noir film. 

Drifter Harry Madox takes a somewhat dead-end job as a car salesman in a small town in Texas. He gets involved with two very different women, the naïve young accountant, Gloria, and the scheming flirtatious Dolly, who’s husband owns the car dealership. After Harry decides to rob the local bank, he becomes embroiled in a hot a mess of lust, blackmail and arson with murder looking like the only way out.
