Why 'Falling Down' is still relevant decades after its release

"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.
