Night and the City | 1992 | R | - 4.3.5

Remake of the influential Jules Dassin film noir, with Robert De Niro as the unscrupulous lawyer who "wants to be somebody."

SEX/NUDITY 4 - One sex scene in the entry way to an apartment building; no nudity and the couple carries on a conversation about moving to California. A scantily clad prostitute is in a lawyer's office after apparently having been arrested for solicitation, she propositions him and grabs his private region.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two fist fights which lead to a man being thrown out of a bar onto the street. An old man is provoked into starting a fight with a young man, and the old man ends up having a heart attack. A woman is punched in the face by her husband. Lots of violent threats.

LANGUAGE 5 - The F-word is used several times as well as a wide range of other profanity. Lots of name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
