Nighthawks ★★★★

this is a really weird movie stuck between the street-level grime of 70s crime actioners and the bigger, more incoherent 80s ones on the horizon, where character would become more about a strange detail every so often peppering a madlib plot rather than conveying any sort of emotion or psychology. anyway large parts of this make no sense, it feels like entire scenes are missing and every character is weirdly bad at their job, but as a result this is a total blast to watch and it has one of the most insane endings i’ve ever seen.
