28. '8 Million Ways to Die' (1986)
The late, great director Hal Ashby ended his career on this occasionally
fascinating crime flick, in which Bridges plays a disgraced ex-cop struggling
with alcoholism who gets involved with a deadly prostitution ring. The plot
doesn't make much sense, but the film is filled with lovely little moments courtesy of Bridges, who brings a casualness to this character
that feels right. So much of the story turns on a dime that his devil-may-care
energy helps sell us on the tale's weirder elements.
