Gangster Squad, 2013.

Starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean PennRobert Patrick, Michael Pena, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Nick Nolte and Josh Pence.


In 1940s La, a group of incorruptible police officers band together to stop an up and coming mafia boss. Throwing aside due process and badges and replacing them with bullets and anonymity, their violent ways lead to a war for the West Coast.

It’s strange that in noir movies, La’s always portrayed as morally bankrupt. Beautiful but deadly. You’d think that Hollywood would want to portray itself better. But then there’s the promise that perhaps you yourself could join in the party, that you could become a free willing smart aleck who doesn’t pay attention to the rules. The mystery is always what’s bought me to noir, both the mystery of the crime and the characters themselves. »
