  • Director Oren Moverman reteams with Woody Harrelson for RAMPART, a brutally honest portrait of a corrupt Los Angeles police officer. Dave Brown (Harrelson) is already the focus of much internal investigation when he's caught on tape beating a black man, sending his already unstable career into a further tailspin. Dave lives with his wife and his ex-wife, who happen to be sisters, but that doesn't stop him from picking up women in bars and going to bed with a lawyer who may or may not be investigating him. As his life spirals out of control, Dave makes one last desperate grab for cash. Co-written by Moverman and crime novelist James Ellroy, RAMPART played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Moverman's camera keeps its hands off Harrelson's psyche, letting the drama result from a cool distance.
    Box Office

    "Woody Harrelson has perhaps never been better than he is in the seamy, scandalous jumbled rumble of RAMPART."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Harrelson's performance is brilliant....It's the work of a major directorial voice. It's a thriller on fire." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Harrelson's casually malevolent performance as Dave Brown, an officer in the scandal-plagued Rampart division, is the actor's most impressive portrayal."
    USA Today

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Harrelson is an ideal actor for the role. Especially in tensely wound-up movies like this, he implies that he's looking at everything and then watching himself looking."
    Chicago Sun-Times
