I just heard about the unexpected passing of John Heard, the great actor who was in many films over the years.

And, I was reminded of his great performance in the extremely underrated thriller "Cutter's Way", also starring Jeff Bridges. This is an amazing film, that deserves to be more well-known.

Highly recommended - if you haven't already seen this:

I like Cutter´s Way very much. It´s very 70s stylewise and we get to see top performances from the cast.

I remember watching it awhile back when AMC still played decent movies. It was a good film. Now their menu consists of Rambo marathons every other week, and Walking Dead repeats. Ugh

It was a slow burn noir-ish movie, but I remember liking it.

The name of this movie sounds familiar, but I don't think I've ever actually seen. Will have to hunt down and give it a watch.

Re-watched Cutter's Way earlier this week. Definitely believe that this film features Heard's best performance - he's very convincing as the disabled, drunken, but still extremely intelligent Cutter; he definitely disappears into the role to a great extent.

The film definitely has a late '70's feel/vibe, which makes sense since it was probably filmed in 1980. Nice Santa Barbara, CA setting as well.

The genuine friendship between Cutter & Bone (the Jeff Bridges character) is interesting, especially given that they have so little in common; Cutter is a disabled Vietnam vet, while Bone is little more than a beach bum. However, you can tell there's a mutual respect there & they definitely stand up for & look out for each other throughout the film.

Excellent & unexpected ending as well!
