My pick of the week for a movie is Rampart, it explores the dark soul of LAPD cop (Woody Harrelson) whose past is finally catching up with him in the wake of a department-wide corruption scandal. Along the way, he is forced to confront his disgruntled daughters and his two ex-wives, played by Anne Heche and Cynthia Nixon, who are rapidly running out of patience with him. Great performances by Sigourney Weaver, an investigator on his trail, Ice Cube and his aging mentor Ned Beatty.

We even have Robin Wright as a mysterious lover, who may or may not be on his side as he fights for his own sanity and survival. The cast is fantastic but this movie belongs to Woody Harrelson, he is just brilliant in it, he should have been nominated for an Oscar. The film is shot beautifully and takes you on an energetic ride through the mind of very mixed up man with a crumbling career as a cop. Loved this movie!
