Fat City

Considered legendary director John Huston's finest work in 20 years, this 1972 "comeback" eyeballs the seedy, sweaty world of working-class boxers in Southern California. Stacey Keach and Jeff Bridges do magnificent work as the fading boxer and his up-and-coming protégé. Susan Tyrrell keeps up with the boys as a hard-drinking barfly. More a raw character study than a Rocky-esque sporting flick, and all the more powerful for it. Double-featured with Drive, He Said. 100 minutes PG.
