An unsung and underrated gem of 1990s independent cinema, Nancy Savoca’s bittersweet romance Dogfight stars River Phoenix as one of four Marines enjoying San Francisco on their last night before being shipped off to Vietnam. They plan to attend a “dogfight” party, where each marine competes to bring the ugliest date. After Phoenix encounters a shy and reluctant girl (Lili Taylor) in a coffee shop, she becomes his unwitting victim, only gradually realizing that their “date” is not what it appears. (1991, 93 mins)
