CUTTER'S WAY (1981): Jeff Bridges stars as Richard Bone, a small time hustler drifting between the beaches and bars of Santa Barbara. John Heard co-stars in a ferocious performance as Alex Cutter; an unpredictable, alcoholic Vietnam vet who lost an eye, leg and arm in the war, and gets angrier about it by the day. The two friends are dragged into a murder mystery when Richard accidentally witnesses a man ditching a body in a trash can. Alex begins to believe that the murderer is a wealthy and powerful man in the community, and starts to blackmail him as a means of striking back at an unjust system that ruined his life. They'll soon find out it's a dangerous game when fighting against the rich and powerful, but Alex Cutter isn't going to back down...
