The Yes List Film: Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster in Rampart

The Yes List film we endorse: Rampart, the darkest, most compelling corrupt-cop movie you'll ever see.

Take director Oren Moverman and stars Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster, the team behind 2009's Oscar-nominated The Messenger. Add Southern California crime writer James Ellroy and a top-shelf supporting cast. The result: Rampart, a complex, panoramic L.A. noir that will haunt you long after you leave the theater. Harrelson is undeniable as a fast-talking rogue police officer who lacks a moral compass—yet remains strangely likable. But the smaller parts—including Sigourney Weaver as an exasperated assistant D.A. and Robin Wright as a sexually voracious defense lawyer—are just as indelible. Out in limited release now. Opens nationwide February 10.
