Jamie Lee Curtis in "Blue Steel"

"Kathryn Bigelow Week" concludes at Trailers from Hell with director Karyn Kusama discussing urban cop drama and Jamie Lee Curtis-starrer "Blue Steel."

Kathryn Bigelow followed Near Dark with a gritty urban thriller also co-written by Eric Red. Jamie Lee Curtis is a rookie NYC policewoman who takes on psycho serial killer Wall Street trader Ron Silver. "It's not the violence, per se, it's the drama, with good, fleshed-out characters and a good story, that interests me," she said at the time. "I'm interested in the art form. If I'm part of the action genre, then, well, I'm proud of that, and I love good action films. But I don't focus on my work in this way."
