Rush (1991)

Grimy in all the best ways.

A dark slice of neo-noir, the only film directed by Lili Fini Zanuck rocked me back in the early days of video stores.

The tale of undercover cops who make really bad decisions, then watch the world crumble from beneath their feet in sickening fashion, it stars the underrated Jason Patric and the always-top tier Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Chasing after a slick, but sinister crime boss, the duo find themselves lost in the job, unable to stop their descent into drug abuse and murder.

This one leaves a bitter, but bracing, aftertaste for days.
