"Falling Down” hit theaters around this time 25 years ago. Michael Douglas plays an unemployed worker who angrily gets out of his car during a downtown traffic jam. He walks to Venice for his daughter’s birthday party, at the home of his estranged wife. Along the way, there are violent run-ins with a Korean store owner, gang members, a Nazi sympathizer, construction workers and golfers.
