Like his other films, Little Odessa and The Yards, James Gray’s Night is an NYC-based movie in which a man struggles with family. This time it’s ’80s Brooklyn, where a club manager (Joaquin Phoenix) is torn between gangsters and his cop brother (Mark Wahlberg) and police-chief father (Robert Duvall). Gray isn’t worried about repeating himself: ”Someone like Kurosawa or Fellini made virtually the same movie over and over. Of course, it’s not the same film — it’s a progression.” Still, maybe Gray’s had enough angst. He’s already working on another film: a romance.
