Austin Film Society: Jewels in the Wasteland: Cutter's Way
Rated R, 109 min. Directed by Ivan Passer. Starring Jeff Bridges, John Heard and Lisa Eichhorn.
One of the great, frequently overlooked films of the Eighties is this textured character study-cum-modern film noir. Heard plays a physically and mentally damaged Vietnam vet who joins with his pal (Bridges) to solve a murder – or at least that's ostensibly what the movie's about. Richard Linklater will introduce the film and discuss it afterward.No current showings of this film.
