Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this offbeat thriller, a refined and well-educated hired killer has an unusual way of doing business: He finds women, forces them to help him with his murders, and then kills them before they can tell anyone about his work. With police detectives on his trail, the killer picks up a woman hitchhiking in the desert, planning to use her in his latest assignment, the murder of a drug kingpin in Mexico. But the killer discovers that his latest "accomplice" is not so eager to cooperate and knows more than he imagines about his life of crime. Desert Saints stars Kiefer Sutherland, Melora Walters, Jamey Sheridan, and Leslie Stefanson.
