Collateral (2004) brings noir to a modern-day Los Angeles. Jamie Foxx plays a cab driver who becomes the hostage of a contract killer. During the night, the cab driver and the killer (Tom Cruise) take us across the city in a murderous spree, from LAX to East L.A., from the beach to the hills. Jamie Foxx was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role.

The screening was followed by a Q&A with Screenwriter Stuart Beattie, moderated by Anna Brusutti (Film and Media Studies, UCSB).

This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center and the Department of Film & Media Studies.
