    Falling in love is easy...relationships are hard!

    Having not seen this since renting sometime in the late 80's, I was surprised at how effective and grim a film this is. An exceptionally gritty and tense James Woods carries this one with some healthy support from some well known faces. The procedural element is mostly supportive of Woods' character but still manages to be involving. And the politics of this film are so far off base it was uncomfortably hilarious at times...the Weird Wednesday crowd was the perfect audience!

    This film is criminally under represented. The cast alone is so good it should be against the law...and everyone gives it all! I watched the shit out of this on video in HS, probably saw it 2-3 times in theaters, much to the dismay of friends, who probably still don't understand what's so great about it. This is not a perfect film, but it is great Walter Hill. It's a tight story and shot with sweat and gusto. Goldsmith's score…
