Dir. Kathryn Bigelow (1991).
This often eye-poppingly entertaining actioner in which maverick undercover FBI agent Keanu Reeves hotly pursues radical dude surfer bank robber Patrick Swayze is arguably the most testosterone-filled movie ever directed by a woman. Its nutty plot-line is redeemed by the awesomely hyperkinetic wild ride surfing and sky-diving sequences while the homoerotic tension between Reeves and Swayze sizzles throughout.
