KISS KISS, BANG BANG
2005, Warner Bros., 103 min, USA, Dir: Shane Black

In this a breezy take on writer-director Shane Black's trademark buddy action/comedy oeuvre, a petty thief (Robert Downey Jr.) is brought to Los Angeles for an unlikely audition and finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation, along with his high school dream girl (Michelle Monaghan) and a detective (Val Kilmer) who has been training him for his upcoming role.


GONE BABY GONE
2007, Miramax, 114 min, Dir: Ben Affleck

In this mesmerizing neo-noir, two detectives search the most unsavory corners of Boston for an abducted four-year-old girl. With a screenplay by Ben Affleck and Aaron Stockard based on the Dennis Lehame novel, GONE BABY GONE boasts an outstanding ensemble cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman. Of particular note is Amy Ryan, who received an Oscar nomination for her turn as a deadbeat mother who viciously capitalizes on the media coverage of her daughter’s disappearance.
