Holy shit! This is the best movie I've ever seen about the border in Texas, or the border in general. It's set in El Paso, TX and represents the city and the people so realistically it almost seemed like a documentary at times, but then you hear Harvey Keitel's hilariously bad impression of a Texas accent. Warren Oates had a smaller role in the film, but was really great as the corrupt Chief of the Border Patrol. The film pointed out some hard truths about the ridiculousness and violence of immigration and it seems like things have only escalated since 1982. This is one of the best roles I've seen Jack in since I saw Warren Beatty's film REDS.
