Reach the Rock is a 1998 film directed by William Ryan.


A small town troublemaker (Alessandro Nivola), directionless and alienated, ends up spending a night in a jail cell, where he and the police chief (William Sadler) engage in a battle of wills and wit.

The soundtrack featured a compilation of Chicago-based Post-Rock artists, among them Tortoise, The Sea and Cake and John McEntire. It was released on Hefty Records, a label owned and operated by John Hughes III, the son of Reach the Rock screenwriter John Hughes.
