Bitter Harvest (1993)

Another 'erotic thriller' with a foot in the 'cowboy noir' camp. Downhome dimwit Stephen Baldwin has just inherited a ranch on ly to learn his Daddy left all the cash to a televangelist when a couple of blondes white trasher Jennifer Ruben and sophisticated Patsy Kensit move in on him for a bewildering threesome. It turns nasty when Ruben shoots a bandit who is trying to rape her and Kensit discovers the plans for the crook's next bank robbery. The trio decide to carry out the crime and Baldwin sinks into more trouble than he can imagine. It starts slowly but the last half hour has a satisfying collection of unguessable twists.
