City of Industry

Genre: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Stephen Dorff, Timothy Hutton, Harvey Keitel, Famke Janssen, Lucy Liu, Michael Jai White; Director: John Irvin; Author: Ken Solarz; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Orion Pictures

Director John Irvin (Widow?s Peak) has a bleak vision of L.A.?s seamy underbelly that makes City of Industry more than just another B movie. Mood counts as much as motivation when, following a heist gone bad, Harvey Keitel goes after his brother?s murderer and a fortune in diamonds. And after watching him wallow through sleaze pits full of lap dancers, loan sharks, and assassins, you feel that he?s earned the right to go on a bloody Taxi Driver-like rampage. With Stephen Dorff as a truly despicable double-crosser. B+
