I feel like we already got our American street crime movie this year (not that we couldn’t always have more!) in one of 2016 best films, but tragically underseen, Triple 9. But this one has more neon, a Torreto-like muscle car, Jaimie Foxx and takes place in… Nevada(!?). It’s based off of a French film titled Nuit Blanche, which I’ve not seen but apparently is pretty highly regarded as a great crime thriller. So count me in for both!
I’m unfamilar with the director, Baran bo Odar, as he’s done the rest of his output in Germany. But I like what I’m seeing here and pretty excited for this actually. The film also stars David Harbour, Michelle Monaghan, Dermot Mulroney, T.I., Gabrielle Union, Kimberly Battista and Scoot McNairy.
