Directed by Kathryn Bigelow

(1991) Ex-Ohio State QB and FBI agent Keanu Reeves gets assigned to infiltrate surfer culture in search of the ex-Presidents, bank robbers wearing Reagan, Nixon, Carter, and LBJ masks. But then their non-stop adrenaline-fueled surfer lifestyle starts to suck him in. Swayze did all of his own, hair-raising stunts. 35mm. Approx. 122 mins.

Reviews

“Where the male action directors are still playing with toys — with dolls and models and matte shots — Bigelow has tapped into something primal and strong.”
