Brew Views: Point Break

Put down the cellphone, squid brain.


“If you want the ultimate, you have to pay the ultimate price.” It’s one of the many pearls of wisdom Patrick Swayze’s Zen-surfing/bankrobbing/skydiving/beach-footballing villain Bodhi spouts over the course of Point Break, and it’s apt for Hecklevision. The ultimate is a rare big-screen showing of Kathryn Bigelow’s true masterpiece. The price you pay is dealing with a sea of people texting wiseass remarks to the screen, their cellphones acting as a horde of blinding fireflies so distracting, you probably won’t notice that, yes, Keanu Reeves just drop-kicked a pit bull. What’s to heckle here, anyway? This should be shown nightly, in a dark theater to maximize the rush of watching the Swayz and Johnny Utah blow a bunch of shit up while almost kissing at every turn.
