Editors Note
Note A laid-off defense worker, kept from seeing his child on her birthday by a restraining order, looks at the landscape of moral decay in Los Angeles on one hot, congested day and, after being mugged, snaps. What follows is his bitter and pathetic mission of justice, vengeance and vindication that reads uncomfortably like too many news stories. Michael Douglas is identified only by his character's license plate, D-FENS, in this attack on social ills, a film originally seen as the displacement of power felt by many white American males.
Plot Summary
Summary The film that brought to the fore issues of white male paranoia in a changing, multi-cultural United States. A stressed-out former defense worker finally cracks when he's caught in a traffic jam. With gun in hand, he abandons his car and journeys on foot through Los Angeles, violently confronting the "alien" forces he holds responsible for his predicament.
