City by the Sea

Rated NR

It’s the compelling cop drama of NYPD Blue without the bare butts and shaky camera work, and the dysfunctional family of Roseanne without the controversial comedienne and her gyrating voice in this intense and witty biopic of Vincent LaMarca based on a 1997 Esquire Magazine article by Pulitzer Prize winner, Michael McAlay. Robert DeNiro stars as, you guessed it, a New York homicide detective whose troubled past catches up with him when the prime suspect in a murder case turns out to be his drug-addicted, street-walking estranged son (James Franco). Director Michael Caton-Jones skillfully juxtaposes a decadent family with a deteriorated city, as one steadily is restored while the other continues on its downward spiral. City by the Sea is a movie you must sea.
