GERONIMO: AN AMERICAN LEGEND
1993, Sony Repertory, 115 min, USA, Dir: Walter Hill

A modern action master, director Walter Hill also displays a reflective side and almost Rossellini-esque historical perspective in his retelling of the last days of resistance of the great Apache leader. One of the most impressive and overlooked late Westerns. With Wes Studi, Matt Damon, Jason Patric, Robert Duvall, Gene Hackman and Scott Wilson. Music by Ry Cooder.


NARC
2002, Paramount, 105 min, USA, Dir: Joe Carnahan

Jason Patric gives a terrific performance as Nick Tellis, an ex-undercover narcotics officer, now addicted to the substances he once busted people for and lured back to the force to solve the murder of a policeman. Tellis teams up with Henry Oak (Ray Liotta), a friend of the deceased and an aggressive cop who’s no stranger to internal affairs investigations. Together the two work through a labyrinth of hot street crime and cold informants to get to the bottom of a case that’s increasingly unpredictable - and deadly. With Busta Rhymes.


THE LOST BOYS
1987, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Joel Schumacher

Jason Patric and little brother Corey Haim move to a California coastal town with their mother (Dianne Wiest), only to find it infested by a gang of teenage bloodsuckers led by Kiefer Sutherland. Joel Schumacher directs this bizarre, spooky and often funny hybrid of the Brat Pack and vampire genres.
