4.0 out of 5 stars Bridges with awesome hair and an even more awesome 'tache, 26 Aug 2011
This review is from: Cutter's Way [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
One of those semi-forgotten Classic Hollywood-era movies (although a bit late, 1981 I think) when there were talented directors being given free reign to make intelligent, beautiful films - tense and suspensful too. Before everything became about genres and MTV-style editing and overblown pretentious tosh like Babel passed for, er, intelligent and beautiful.

If you'd rather watch Chinatown than Star Wars then you can't go wrong for a fiver. Bridges is pitch-perfect - pretty unsympathetic womanising moocher who gives new meaning to the concept of reluctant hero, yet so compelling and real. Also, it's worth noting, sporting amazing hair and 'tache. Heard, who most people will probably recognise as the rather anonymous dad in Home Alone, or the brilliantly childish exec in Big - gives a great, and for him quite atypical performance - another unsympathetic character who frustrates as much as he endears. Lisa Eichorn, an actor I'm not terribly familiar with, is equally brilliant in her portrayal of a sad, pathetic, beautiful alcoholic. By the 90s, the protagonists would have probably been played as loveable rogues with an endless supply of Bruce Willis one-liners, but the characters, scenes and pace are so real - which might put modern audiences off a bit, but I loved it anyway.
