and Benicio del Toro is a fine noir, set in the Motor City, and sporting a properly convoluted and interesting plot line based on a true story: the collusion among the Big 3 to hide catalytic converter tech information from the feds.
Don't expect, "The Naked City," and settle back for an above average drama with a surprising number of gifted male actors (Liotta and Damon with nice cameos)--- the females were a minor league few.
New on HBO Max.

I mean everything but the kitchen sink...marital infidelity in two marriages, serious consequences in both cases, everybody backstabbing everybody else, government racist policies, corporate espionage, corruption...and somehow it all sort of hangs together in a fast-moving never-boring rush.
There is a pretty amazing cast, including one uncredited business magnate, and I won't reveal the surprise, all in great form, having fun.
I was a bit put off by the fisheye view, I thought something was wrong with the version I was watching, then I read that this was just the way it was shot. I'm not sure why, but OK, if that's his vision, I'll roll with it.
Born and raised in Metro Detroit, I absolutely loved it. The film really did a GREAT job capturing the Detroit of the '50's.
