Overview
Freeways are clogged. Terror stalks our cities. At shops and restaurants, the customer is seldom right. The pressure of big-city life can anger anyone. But Bill Foster is more than angry. He's out to get even.

"I'm going home," Foster says as he abandons his gridlocked car on the hottest day of the year. Instead, he walks straight into an urban nightmare by turns absurdly funny and shatteringly violent. Academy Award® winner* Michael Douglas is Foster, an ordinary guy at war with the frustrations of daily living. Fellow Oscar® winner* Robert Duvall is the savvy cop obsessed with stopping Foster's citywide rampage. Falling Down is their story, a spellbinding, unconventional thriller that asks: "Are we falling apart?"

* Douglas: Best Actor for Wall Street (1987) and as a Producer (with Saul Zaentz) of the best picture One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975); Duvall: Best Actor for Tender Mercies (1983).
