Right Behind The Flag

1988
Character: Bernie
Directors: R.J. Cutler
Writers: Kevin Heelan
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Amy Aquino, Joe Bellan, W.T. Martin, Paul McCrane, Richard Riehle
Storyline:
Mr. Spacey gives an absorbing performance as Bernie, although he keeps the character's anger on such a short fuse that he is prone to explode almost precipitately. Mr. Martin's Frankie is equally well played, and the two actors are riveting in their scenes together. Bernie is an air-conditioner salesman who, by his own admission, is ''a person of limited gifts,'' and that makes him angry. In fact, Bernie is angry about a lot of things. His grandmother has to live with five locks on her door; Pakistan is building atomic bombs; a woman he meets in a bar is more interested in saving seals than humans, and his barber can't even remember Qaddafi's name.
