Strange Days

145' - 1995 - Crime, Science Fiction, Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: English
Director: Kathryn Bigelow Composer: Graeme Revell With: Ralph Fiennes, Angela Bassett, Juliette Lewis
This epic thriller is set in a hellish LA during the last 2 days of the 20th century. The city has nearly been burned to the ground by warring factions of anarchists, renegade cops, and militaristic rebels fighting racial oppression. Ex-cop Lenny Nero sells voyeuristic scenes from other people's lives. Many of his little slices of life are horribly violent. Nero prefers scenes involving his sexy lover Faith. Unfortunately, she recently left him to be with the sadistic gangster Philo Gant. Nero is unwilling to let go of Faith and despite the danger presented by Gant's henchman, keeps trying to win her back. He redoubles his efforts when a friend of Faith warns him that she is in mortal danger. (Sandra Brennan)
