A disgruntled, emotionally-messed-up former defense worker begins a destructive journey across Los Angeles to reach his daughter for her birthday, despite the protests of his ex-wife who fears for her safety. Along the way he tackles over-priced grocery stores, challenges a neo-Nazi and his political views, gang members, and demands breakfast from a lunch-serving restaurant. Hot on his trail is the retiring desk sergeant who pieces together the puzzle from a series of clues which leads him to the identity of the villain.

My personal favourite movie of all time. A rare glimpse of Michael Douglas playing against-type in what is without doubt his best ever performance, an opinion which Douglas himself has echoed in interviews.
