Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Kathryn Bigelow. 1991, 122 mins. With Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Gary Busey, Lori Petty. Two of the great Hollywood movie stars of the 1990s—a sun-bleached Patrick Swayze at the height of his success and a cherubic Keanu Reeves on the cusp of his—play a gonzo skydiving criminal and the rookie undercover FBI agent assigned to catch him and his band of bank robbers, called the “Ex-Presidents” for their rubber disguises. As bonkers as it sounds, and ten times as fun, Kathryn Bigelow gives every heist set piece an adrenaline jolt, and Reeves and Swayze have a homoerotic ball as the best of enemies who get in too deep.
