Trivia Essay was about puff reelect documentary mark Wahlberg tomatoes. This description comes from. That's how you say words in a broken city right with injustice X. Culpability Taggart whose Mark Wahlberg seeks redemption and revenge after being double crossed and framed. So what is the mystery of the film? What is the mystery a mystery? Is you think you're going down one route with Russell Crowe's characters wife played by Catherine Zeta Jones having an affair but then underneath all that and more is actually happening is far bigger and far more sort of socially wrong. That's that's the boring bit. Let's face it. Let's face it was a cop. He's now he's he's seven years ago he was a cop. He killed a young man who got off from some pretty heinous crimes on a technicality. Reis Book carried out. Some vengeance left the force but didn't go to prison because the man Russell.

Everyone else is Jeffrey Roy. In it as well. He's amazing he's got Barry Pepper. Who is the best named actor? He's he plays the rival candidate. Yeah because there's an election coming up in a few days time and crows very worried about his wife sleeping around because if people find out as well as sleeping around. They won't vote for him. Which is the thing. Ever like. They've elected they've elected racist sexist but never like the guy who's yeah what she really. That's really strange motivation. But okay. It's got eight. Creditors produces and ten credited production companies on Wikipedia. The first one minute and twenty seconds of the movie is just Lagos. I always production did keep thinking I was thinking. This is a an interesting thing. That big little. Highly futuristic turns out. It's another production today. It also didn't do very well critically or commercially. Made thirty four million on a production budget of thirty five million dollars. But also that's not counting for marketing so actually probably lost about twenty million or something so didn't set the world on fire like that but do we think it fits the category of being a gritty mystery. Oh yeah it's the mean streets isn't it's dark. It's constantly all the time. Yeah time and say pre sexist. You know they've got some nice generalizations going on their favorite liner had from the whole story. Which was the bulldogs in up to his neck very very thick neck and he chief of police.
