Brooklyn's Finest Preview/Synopsis

Brooklyn's Finest March 5

Directed by Antoine Fuqua ( Training Day, King Arthur ) Starring Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle, Richard Gere, Wesley Snipes, Ellen Barkin, Vincent D' Onofrio, Lili Taylor, Will Patton. Written by Michael C. Martin ( Sleeper Cell ) Cinematography by Patrick Murguia ( Beyond The Sky ) Editing Barbara Tulliver ( Signs, State and Main ) Original Music by Marcelo Zarvos ( The Good Shepherd, Hollywoodland )

Film takes place in a " Crash " type premise taking place in the three boroughs of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, where in the course of one chaotic week, the lives of 3 New York City police officers are effected dramatically by their involvement in a massive drug operation resulting in tragic consequences.

Rate R for bloody violence throughout, language, some sexuality, nudity, drug content and pervasive language. 140 min.

Oscar chances ? Honestly most likely not. In a stretch, and if real convincing, Hawke or Cheadle could possibly earn a supporting nomination. But being released in February doesn't give the film much chance. There can only be one Shutter Island.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
