Gritty crime drama

Hot on the heels of its success at the Sundance Festival, the explosive thriller NARC looks set to become a big contender at the up and coming BAFTAs. There are two stunning central performances - by Ray Liotta and Jason Patric - and this independently made movie looks set to launch the career of writer/director Joe Carnahan.

In homage to such classic films as “The French Connection” and “Serpico,” writer/director Joe Carnahan’s “Narc” explores the dark underbelly of the drug world with a compelling story about the intense psyche behind those individuals called “narcs,” undercover officers who put themselves on the front lines of the war against drugs.

Chipping away at the number of dealers on the streets, these brave men and women leave their loved ones behind each day as they throw themselves into the brutal world of drug abuse for one purpose only…to end it.

“Narc” tells the story of suspended undercover narcotics officer, Nick Tellis (Jason Patric), who is reluctantly drawn back onto the force to find the truth behind the murder of a young police officer killed in the line of duty. He is teamed with Henry Oak (Ray Liotta), the slain officer’s partner, a rogue cop who will stop at nothing to avenge his friend’s death.

As Tellis and Oak unravel the case, the dark underbelly of the narcotics world reveals itself in surprising ways that are more twisted than either officer has seen before…and the mystery that slowly reveals itself threatens to destroy them both.

Nominated for the Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah and winner of the Special Prize Policier Award at the Cognac Film Festival in France, “Narc” is written and directed by an innovative new voice in filmmaking, Joe Carnahan (“Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane”).

An intense adrenaline rush from the first heart-stopping chase scene to the stunning dramatic climax, this taut police thriller also features rap artist Busta Rhymes (“Finding Forester,” “Shaft”) and Chi McBride (“Undercover Brother”).
