Flesh and Bone (1993)


Steve Kloves directs Dennis Quaid, Meg Ryan and James Caan in this borderlands crime drama about a man trying to ignore his criminal childhood, despite his father, a young grifter and a pretty yet damaged waif interjecting themselves into his solitary existence. 

A neat little neo-noir, stronger in atmosphere and character than when it tries to tame all its wild plot horses into one cohesive corral. The Jim Thompson-esque grifting lifestyles are well realised, the starry cast doing their best to make their high end profiles fit into the dust and desperation.
