Underrated Movie of the Week
U-Turn, 1997, dir. Oliver Stone, starring Sean Penn, Jennifer Lopez, Nick Nolte, Powers Boothe, Jon Voight, Claire Danes, Joaquin Phoenix, Billy Bob Thornton, Julie Hagerty, Ilia Volokh, Valery Nikolaev, Brent Briscoe, Bo Hopkins and Laurie Metcalfe.
Sure, pretty much everyone hates this movie, but I enjoy it for being so completely and utterly bonkers. It was also back when Jennifer Lopez was an interesting up-and-coming actress. It feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it?
