Bill Paxton in One False Move

Remember Bill Paxton in the 1992 crime picture One False Move, in which he played an Arkansas police chief? Not many do. It's been called one of his forgotten and under-appreciated performances.

Paxton died Saturday at age 61 following complications from heart surgery.

In appreciation of his work, KUAR's Karen Tricot Steward talks to Arkansas film critic Philip Martin about the movie, which was filmed in Star City and Cotton Plant. Martin says the dark crime story is likely one of the best movies of the '90s and that viewers tend to either love it or be repulsed by it.
