A New York at odds with Woody Allen's, albeit also filled with angst; where Allen dissects the middle class in the throes of its own insecurities, Lumet cruises the underbelly

While this tough, fundamentally sound New York thriller has its moments, it's no Prince of the City.
January 26, 2006
Sidney Lumet's third film about corruption in the NYC police department is a gritty, gripping and profane thriller with a powerhouse performance by an intimidating Nick Nolte.
| Original Score: 4/4

Unfortunately, Lumet isn't the brawny social commentator he would like to be -- he's a Jimmy Breslin manque'.

"Q&A" is worth a look as a serious film by an uncompromising filmmaker.

Nolte is hilariously bad and good at the same time as a corrupt cop, while Hutton is the earnest DA trying to bust him.
| Original Score: 3/5

It is nice to see a film that does not talk down to its audience even if perhaps it goes a little far in the other direction.

Q&A is a major film by one of our finest mainstream directors. As both a portrait of modern-day corruption and an act of sheer storytelling bravura, it is not to be missed.
