Rating:

Cutter's Way is the cult 1981 crime thriller from director Ivan Passer (Haunted Summer, Crime and Passion), adapted from the popular novel by Newton Thornburg. Alexander Cutter (John Heard, Home Alone, CHUD, After Hours, Big), perhaps cinema's all-time best antihero, is an angry Vietnam veteran who returned from what he now regards as a meaningless war minus an arm, an eye, and a leg. He hates the fat cats - feeling that they conned him and others into patriotically serving while they stayed home, and he resents his best friend Richard Bone (Jeff Bridges, The Big Lebowski, True Grit, King Kong, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot) who avoided the war and continues to avoid any involvement or commitment. Commitment is Alexander Cutter's one remaining virtue, when he sets his sights on taking down an arrogant oil tycoon who has gotten away with murdering a 17 year old cheerleader, he stubbornly refuses to give up this mission and insists on doing it his way.moreless
