This is the story of Joe Blake and Terry Collins (Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton), the two most successful bank-robbers ever, And how their world is torn apart by a female hostage (Cate Blanchett). The script is very good, with lots of clever lines, most going to Thornton, who's performance is superb. He's very funny as the hypochondriac Collins. Barry Levinson should definitely stick to comedies like this and 'Wag The Dog', and stay away from sci-fi nonsense like 'Sphere'. Very funny and clever film with good performances from the three main stars.
This is the debut film from Bryan Singer, director of The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil and X-Men. It is the story of a drifter who wanders into a sleepy town and wakes it up. The central character is played wonderfully by Ron Marquette. Singers directing is exceptional, even more so when you consider it's his first feature. Fans of his later work should definitely try and track down a copy of this rarely seen masterpiece.
