Kathryn Bigelow United States, 1989

kinojay33's rating of the film Blue Steel

I watched “Blue Steel” a few years after it came out, as a teenager. Like many films that I adored from that era, I figured I’d be disappointed after 25yrs of film theory/viewing, finding what I once thought to be gritty & dark as cheap & sensationalistic. Not so. Rewatching Blue Steel is one of few films from this era/genre (the other being Abel Ferara’s “King of New York”) that I enjoyed more on revisitation.
