Blue Steel ★★ 1990 (R)

Director Bi gelow's much-heralded, proto-feminist cop thriller. A serious female rookie's gun falls into the hands of a Wall Street psycho who begins a killing spree. Action film made silly with over-anxious sub-text and patriarchy-directed rage. 102m/C VHS, DVD Jamie Lee Curtis, Ron Silver, Clancy Brown, Louise Fletcher, Philip Bosco, Elizabeth Pena, Tom Sizemore; D: Kathryn Bigelow; W: Kathryn Bigelow, Eric Red; M: Brad Fiedel.
