  • Running Time: 108 mins

Nothing fascinates like a dirty cop. In real life they’re terrifying, but in the movies their upending of law and order can open deep explorations of psychology, morality and violence. Meet Dave Brown: 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. 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. But as a corruption scandal ignites and controversy seeps through the department and into city hall, this hardened, reckless officer finds himself at the center of a sordid L.A. story. (Millennium Entertainment)

"Oren Moverman's Rampart is a terrific film: tense, shocking, complex, mesmerizing."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Harrelson is an ideal actor for the role. Especially in tensely wound-up movies like this, he implies that he's looking at everything and then watching himself looking."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Noir connoisseurs, however, will receive Moverman's latest like a double-bourbon from heaven. Rampart is the best crime-movie fix from Hollywood since 'Gone Baby Gone.'"
- Stephen Cole, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"This movie's too small and too dark to have gotten Harrelson into the overcrowded best-actor race, but it's without question one of the year's great performances."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
