Rampart

Crime drama about a dirty cop (Woody Harrelson) balancing a cash-strapped home life with his involvement in the LAPD's infamous Rampart corruption scandal. Co-written by iconic crime author James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential).

"Dave Brown (Harrelson) is a cop long ago unleashed from the rules of the Los Angeles Police Department. Roving the streets in his black-and-white cruiser, he governs and punishes at will. His home life is a riddle. Somehow he has fathered children with two sisters (Anne Heche and Cynthia Nixon). Somehow he still lives casually with them both, slipping in and out of a family life that’s as tangled as his long career on the force... When his Rampart division gets caught up in a corruption scandal, Brown makes an easy target. As the controversy seeps through the department and into city hall, this hardened, reckless officer finds himself at the centre of a sordid LA story." (Toronto International Film Festival 2011)

Freaking heck is vicious, like 'Bad Lieutenant ' on speed, while humping everything! Woody Harrelson plays his thoughtful and intelligent cop very well, to a tee, which is a far cry from his early beginings as Woody Boyd on 'Cheers' or Tallahesse in 'Zombieland'. Its almost like a zombie flick but the people are alive. Being a snap shot, filmfestival piece,...
