Crime Dramas

The protagonist could be a cop or a criminal in this genre that explores the illicit and dangerous side of life.

A Most Violent Year Film Review star
Abel Morales has a business that is under threat. His trucks are being hijacked and his employees are physically assaulted. Does he respond using the same violent tactics? "A Most Violent Year" is J.C. Chandor's third film as writer and director.

Animal Kingdom Film Review star
It is survival of the fittest in this Darwinian crime drama set in Melbourne. Young Josh Cody is torn between the demands of his dysfunctional criminal family and the precepts of the law. "Animal Kingdom" is the impressive debut feature from writer/director David Michod.

Blackhat Film Review star
Acclaimed director Michael Mann returns with another crime drama. "Blackhat" stars Chris Hemsworth as an imprisoned hacker who is offered his freedom in return for helping the FBI hunt down the ultimate cyber criminal.

Dead Bang Film Review star
Los Angeles detective Jerry Beck uncovers a white supremacist plot while investigating the murder of a fellow officer. Don Johnson delivers one of his best performances in this 1989 crime drama, directed by John Frankenheimer.

Marshland Film Review star
Two police officers in post-Franco Spain search for a serial killer while battling their own demons. A police procedural with a political subtext, "Marshland" won every major film award in Spain.

Mikey and Nicky Film Review star
Elaine May, known for her comedic gifts, takes a detour into noir for her third feature film. Influenced by the maverick indie director John Cassavetes, and starring Cassavetes and Peter Falk, "Mikey and Nicky" is an unflinching look at friendship and betrayal in the urban jungle.

The Connection Film Review star
Jean Dujardin stars as Pierre Michel, an investigative judge determined to wipe out crime boss Gaetan Zampa. Filmed on location in Marseille, "The Connection" is an elegant and sophisticated take on the period crime thriller.

The Drop Film Review star
Writer Dennis Lehane, who penned "Shutter Island" and "Mystic River", creates another memorable gallery of characters in "The Drop". Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini star as cousins who operate a Brooklyn bar under the control of a Chechen mobster. An ill-fated robbery leads to deadly consequences.

The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun Review star
Danielle, a young secretary, "liberates" her boss's car and sets off for the French Riviera. The lark threatens to turn into a nightmare as she falls for an Italian thief and her grip on reality begins to slip.
