    We Own the Night

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The best part of this movie is how it fucking movies. Wahlberg raids a club, he gets hit. Phoniex goes undercover, he gets caught. Phoniex goes into protection, they find him. Duvall is killed, Phoniex becomes a cop. Gray might have been going for Lumet, but he ended up at Hill.

    And Joaquin Phoniex walking under those red lights in slo-mo while Heart of Glass plays has to be one of the best intros of the past 20 years.

    I have never related to a moment in a film as much as when Luis Guzmán
    asks for ice cubes in his milk.

    No sunglasses on the dog in the actual movie - disappointing.

    ★★★★

    Mickey Rourke is a schlubby PI with a phobia of chickens, Robert De Niro is the subtly named Louis Cyphre and Lisa Bonet is the daughter of a jello loving OB/GYN. At the end a fat gut explains everything and a demon eyed baby points at Mickey Rourke. Pretty good.
