The Hit

1984 / 98min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: STEPHEN FREARS

CAST: TERENCE STAMP, JOHN HURT, TIM ROTH, FERNANDO REY, LAURA DEL SOL

The cream of English screen acting is on display in Frears’ auspicious, underseen feature debut, in which turncoat gangster Terence Stamp is ferreted out of hiding in his Spanish villa by two hitmen—old pro John Hurt and youthful hothead Tim Roth, taking their quarry on the road while police inspector Fernando Rey follows in hot pursuit, acquiring firebrand Laura del Sol, and a heavy load of problems, along the way.

The Hit is screening as part of the series Terence Stamp.
