Starring Joaquin Pheonix, Mark Wahlberg, Robert Duvall and Eva Mendes
Director James Gray is one of the modern masters of American storytelling; his films, always New York set, have a profound sense of classic drama and an inimitable use of light and color, stemming from the directors early ambitions to be a painter. In the 1980s set WE OWN THE NIGHT, a successful club manager’s loyalties are tested when a city-wide drug war threatens his police force family members.
“A TREMENDOUSLY crafted crime drama.”--Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
“A bloody, passionate melodrama.. demonstrates a rough, lived-in authority and an unpretentious sense of craft.”--A.O Scott, The New York Times
