Slacker Richard Bone's (Bridges) car breaks down in an alleyway on a rainy evening. The next day a murder victim is found there making him a suspect. Bone, though, believes a local tycoon is behind the killing. Enlisting the help of his friend Alex Cutter (Heard) and the dead girl's sister, he begins to uncover a dangerous conspiracy.
Like the '70s output of Pakula and Lumet, Ivan Passer's tense thriller stands as a classy monument to the paranoia of post-Watergate America.
