One of the most original, unpredictable buddy movies in cinematic history, this thriller stars four-time Oscar nominee Jeff Bridges and John Heard as two friends locked in a pulse-pounding battle for their lives. The film was directed by Ivan Passer, a significant figure in the Czech New Wave of the mid-1960s.

Passer worked closely with Miloš Forman on many of his films, and directed his first feature in 1965. Following the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, Passer defected to the West, aided by Carlo Ponti and has been living and working in the United States since then.
