Death, Interrupted

The Interrupters

We’re no Windy City, but Omaha has endured the cold gusts of murder enough to feel sick, enough for The Interrupters to resonate and resonate hard. Director Steve James, whose Hoop Dreams still ranks among the most poignant of recorded nonfiction, has again found a way to seamlessly weave narrative and message, to simultaneously break hearts and raise spirits. Working with best-selling author...

  • Whether it’s because of the quotable dialogue, the copious use of Michelle Pfeiffer in her prime or our inherent ability to accept gangsters despite their being terrible, terrible people, Scarface is massively beloved. Now, for the first time in a long while, you can see all the coke-snorting and murder on the big screen, like God and Brian De Palma intended. Both AMC Oakview 24 and AMC Star...
