A milestone Douglas performance.
On June 11, the American Film Institute (AFI) has honored
Academy Award® winner Michael Douglas (Wall Street,
One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest) with their prestigious
Lifetime Achievement Award.
Leading up to the event, on May 26, Warner Home Video
featuring an outstanding performance from Douglas in this
searing tale of urban reality about an ordinary man at war
with the everyday world. Joel Schumacher (The Phantom of
the Opera, Batman Forever) directed this spellbinding thriller
which also stars Academy Award® winner Robert Duvall
(Godfather I & II), Barbara Hershey (The Right Stuff),
Tuesday Weld (Looking for Mr. Goodbar) and Rachel Ticotin
(The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants).
Freeways are clogged. Terror stalks our cities. At shops and
restaurants, the customer is seldom right. Pressures of big-city
life can anger anyone. But Bill Foster is more than angry.
He’s out to get even. Foster abandons his gridlocked car –
license plate D-FENS – on the hottest day of the year and
walks straight into an urban nightmare both absurdly funny
and shatteringly violent. Michael Douglas is Foster, an
ordinary guy at war with the frustrations of daily life.
Robert Duvall is the savvy cop obsessed with stopping
Foster’s citywide rampage. This spellbinding thriller is their
story, asking “Are we falling apart?”
