detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five
Senegalese immigrants in this gritty Crime drama from Oscar-nominated
auteur, Werner Herzog. Also starring Oscar nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Eva Mendes (Training Day) and Val Kilmer (Top Gun).

“In fusing European experimentalism and Hollywood boldness,
Herzog has created a genuine oddity, a furious and unforgettable hybrid
which may well prove to be 2010’s most purely enjoyable moviegoing
experience.” – Tom Huddleston, Time Out
