Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow
A year before Point Break, Kathryn Bigelow offered a different take on law enforcement with Blue Steel, starring Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie cop locked in a game of cat-and-mouse with a Terminator-like yuppie played by Ron Silver. Silver chews the scenery to absolute death as an over-the-top killer who also romances Curtis' Megan before he blows his cover. (Available on Tubi)
