The Yards

Every once in awhile a film slips through the cracks and goes unnoticed by the general public. The Yards, directed by James Gray and starring Mark "Don't Call Me Marky Mark" Wahlberg, is a prime example of a film that deserves an audience but never got one in its theatrical release in 2000. In his review of the film, Roger Ebert wrote that the film resembles both The Godfather and Mean Streets. Not bad company if you ask me.
