The Border

A Tex-Mex stew that looks to have all the right spicy ingredients, but emerges under gringo chef Richardson as not exactly indigestible, merely flavourless. Limping home late and lost amid numerous exposés of tragedy and corruption along America's chain-link southern frontier, it simply hands us Nicholson moodily scratching his conscience as a patrolman pitying the poor immigrants (one young wetback madonna in particular), and going up against his superiors' smuggling operation.
