Things look different with Bobby (Joaquin Phoenix). The black sheep of the family has turned away from the law and built a nightclub that has become the home base of the Russian mafia has become. He lives a life without rules with his girlfriend Amanda (Eva Mendes). But then his shop is raided.

The fronts between Bobby and his family have already hardened. Now the situation threatens to finally escalate. Director Gray, who set his story in 1988, takes us ever deeper into a hopeless world in which one thing reigns supreme: despair. And this desperation leads the characters to make devastating decisions.

Gray is incredibly good at combining genre elements into a melodramatic framework. Each of his films feels like the characters trapped in an eternal night, while in the darkness emotions simmer in wrenching ways. A CBS series like Blue Bloods would never venture into this abyss.
