Night Falls on Manhattan
Night Falls on Manhattan is one of those rare films that actually does justice to our legal system. It tackles police corruption and its corresponding moral quandary in a thoughtful, intelligent manner. After assistant district attorney Sean Casey (Garcia) wins a high-profile case against a cop-killing drug dealer (Mahmud-Bey), he is elected district attorney and finds himself entangled in a corruption scandal. Several New York cops, including his father's partner, are suspected of accepting bribes from the drug dealer Casey just put away. As the son of a cop, Casey believes there's plenty of gray when justice meets the street. A gritty drama with sharply drawn characters.
