Starring Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Keith David, Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger

Ryan Gosling plays a sleazy private-eye (with a teenage daughter considerably more intelligent than him) who teams up with an enforcer with a guilty conscience (Crowe) to track down a lost porn star. Like any good noir, the setup leads to a bigger plot involving murder and government corruption. The two stars work well together with Crowe as the stoic brute with a soft side and Gosling as a fool who every once and a while gets something right. It’s a little uneven in terms of comedy, but overall it’s a fine film.
