a crime thriller about guilt and obsession
Denzel Washington and Rami Malek are two cops tracking down a serial killer in this crime thriller written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The Highwaymen). Co-stars Oscar-winner Jared Leto as the prime suspect.
Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence-gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter (Malek), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.
Simultaneously pleasurable and a bit unsettling, in both the good and bad senses of that word.
