STREETS OF FIRE
by Walter Hill
1984, 95 minutes, 35mm

This screening is part of: HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS OF THE 1970s & 80s, PART 2: THE 1980s

Film Notes

With Michael Paré, Diane Lane, Rick Moranis, Amy Madigan, and Willem Dafoe.

“A futuristic rock fantasy which is, at heart, a Western. An itinerant soldier (Paré) returns to his home to discover that his former girlfriend, the local girl who’s made it big in the rockbiz (Lane) has been kidnapped by a villainous street gang. Cue for fisticuffs and fireworks as Paré, aided by a tough-talking female sidekick (Madigan) hikes over to the bad part of town and unlocks Ms. Lane from the bed to which she’s been handcuffed. Result? Showdown. STREETS OF FIRE is fast and loud, with music from Ry Cooder…it is also violent, though its violence lies not in the depiction of blood and entrails, but in the sheer energy and speed with which the dark and brooding images rush after one another. The message is that there is no message; if this isn’t action cinema in its purest form, then it’s pretty close.” –Richard Rayner, TIME OUT FILM GUIDE
