The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★★★

A Shane Black Greatest Hits record. Or maybe it's a remix tape (it's essentially LAST BOY SCOUT set in the 70s). Either way, this may be his most confidently directed movie to date, full of sadness, hilarity and possibly as much noir cynicism as CHINATOWN. Matt Bomer is a De Palma psycho more than a Black super-henchman. Possibly Gosling's best performance...ever?
