Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3) is back in the director’s chair, this time with a heavy-hitting duo in Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. A modern noir about a private eye and an enforcer who get in way too deep after they’re hired to find someone’s daughter, the movie has all the hallmarks of a Black joint. There’s L.A. glamour, dark humor, seedy men, and convoluted conspiracy. Black doesn’t miss on hijinks like this, and Crowe and Gosling seem to actually have a ton of chemistry in this film, so this may be a sleeper hit.
