We Own the Night

(USA, 2007, 117 minutes)

In 1988 New York, the manager of a nightclub owned by the Russian mob, a stray son of a policeman family, is forced to choose between job and family when his brother goes after his boss. Old-fashioned, fatalistic crime drama; well made and written, but a bit too self-aware for comfort.
