Program Notes

Obsessed with bringing terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) to justice, FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) tracks down Troy, who has boarded a plane in Los Angeles. After the plane crashes and Troy is severely injured, possibly dead, Archer undergoes surgery to remove his face and replace it with Troy’s. As Archer tries to use his disguise to elicit information about a bomb from Troy’s brother, Troy awakes from a coma and forces the doctor who performed the surgery to give him Archer’s face.

“Woo, a master of poetical carnage, mixes kitsch, sadism, sentiment and comedy with choreographic precision.” – David Ansen, Newsweek

“[A] gorgeously shot, repetitively violent, occasionally repellent, sometimes silly and consistently trashy fantasy.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
