directed by Lili Fini Zanuck
USA 1991

" 'Rush' is the story of two undercover narcotics agents who get badly hooked on the drugs they are buying and illegally using. The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh - he as Raynor, an experienced narc, she as Kristen, the recruit he takes from civilian life into an underworld of addiction.

The movie has excellent credentials. Inspired by a true story, it's based on a book by Kim Wozencraft and a screenplay by Pete (Paris Trout) Dexter. It is the first directing effort by Lili Zanuck, co-producer of "Driving Miss Daisy," but feels like the work of a more experienced director, especially in the way she gives full measure to the many strong supporting performances in the film."

Wonderful DVD from MGM! Solid anamorphic picture. Great 5.1 sound... and this is also a great film! I saw no visible edge enhancement, the image was clear and the black levels solid, if not penetrating. The disc includes a featurette "Filming Rush", an anamorphic trailer and a commentary by the director Lili F. Zanuck. What I like best about this is the price; $15 CAN from (converts to $9.54 US). A great deal! out of
