Point Break (1991)
Friday, July 21 at 11:30pm PDT
Summer is one of the best times to get out there and take in a Friday Late Night Movie, and Kathryn Bigelow's action-packed surfer/skydiving/undercover crime flick POINT BREAK is one of our all-time favourites - not to mention a total cult-classic that has inspired both a musical live show and a 2015 reboot (oof). But nothing beats Bigelow's (who would later go on to become the first female director to win a Best Picture Oscar for THE HURT LOCKER) original, which boasts standout performances from the late, great, (and, not surprisingly, aerodynamically graceful) Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, and Lori Petty. With Gary Busey, John C. McGinley, and Anthony Kiedis.
"There's enough high-octane, heart-racing excitement for a dozen movies." (Time Out)
"POINT BREAK is the best movie about cops, robbers, surfing and sky diving that you're likely to see." (Philadelphia Daily News)

POINT BREAK (Kathryn Bigelow, 1991 / 122 mins / 18A) After a string of bizarre bank robberies in Southern California, with the crooks donning masks of various former presidents, a federal agent, Johnny Utah, infiltrates the suspected gang. But this is no ordinary group of robbers. They're surfers -- led by the charismatic Bodhi -- who are addicted to the rush of thievery. But when Utah falls in love with a female surfer, Tyler, who is close to the gang, it complicates his sense of duty.
