The son of a slain NYPD officer joins the force, where he falls in with his father's former partner and a team of rogue cops.
Messy cop thriller with more ambition than it can handle; the top-notch cast deliver rather wobbly performances.
Maltin BOMB: "Stylistically rocky New Orleans-shot throwaway is another of too many movies where De Niro seems to be phoning in his performance."
A newly unemployed cellist takes a job preparing the dead for funerals.
Subtle and touching tale of man pursuing an unusual and frowned upon work; made in good taste and not without some fine humour.
Maltin***: "Offbeat, leisurely paced, and disarmingly funny at times, this likable film becomes highly emotional as loose ends in Motoki's life are tied up and he comes to embrace nis unusual profession. Some will find this manioulative; others will succumb and tears will flow."
