Re: Neo-noir list Street Kings (2008)
James Ellroy co-wrote the screenplay from a story he wrote. This movie is a contender for a top 25 notch, unless others even better displace it. This outshines many, many films. Keanu Reeves finds here a part well-suited to him. Forest Whitaker is at his best.
This is not a film as perfectly done as "The Asphalt Jungle". It's not that good, but among neo-noirs it's competitive for a high spot. Neo-noirs are generally not that good as films. It may prove difficult to find a top 25 and to be able to write a blurb on each one explaining why it is so excellent.
