BROOKLYN`S FINEST (crossing) (2008 U.S.) D: ANTOINE FUQUA W: MICHAEL C. MARTIN P: ELIE COHN/BASIL IWANYK/JOHN LANGLEY/AVI LERNER/JOHN THOMPSON
Retiring, suicidal Richard Gere, undercover Don Cheadle and guilty corrupt Catholic Ethan Hawke are the three leads with their own intertwining story threads in this extended character and mood piece about how fucking horrible it is to be a cop in Brooklyn. It`s nothing you haven`t seen before and lacks focus and direction, but it`s also quite absorbing, with some nice nuances, fine acting (Ellen Barkin gives a particularly memorable turn) and i enjoyed watching it quite a bit. At least as much (if not more so) than Fuqua`s somewhat overrated breakthrough TRAINING DAY (also with Hawke). With Lili Taylor, Wesley Snipes, Vincent D`Onofrio, Will Patton, Brian F. O`Byrne, MIchael K. Williams, Jesse Williams, Shannon Kane and Hassan Johnson.
