SEEN' O The Day: The Salton Sea

The Salton Sea is an intense film that asks the question,  "how far one would go to venge the death of a loved one?"  Val Kilmer plays Danny Parker who goes undercover to find the men that killed his wife.  He plays the role of a drug dealer.

In the clip below Danny and his partner Jimmy the Finn (who has no idea Danny is undercover) scores from a local low-end dealer.  The scene is funny and sad all at the same time.  The effects of drugs and the danger Danny is willing to put himself in, to find the men who took away his only love.

What I really dig about this scene is the subtextual contrast of the lovely angelic vocals of Minnie Riperton's "Loving You" playing in the background along with the intensity of this scene.  Classic!

Warning:  This clip may be a bit disturbing to some
