Wondering why times are missing?

American Gangster

Based on an article by Marc Jacobson (who also inspired 2001's The Believer), this crime saga dramatizes (some might say "lionizes") the life of Manhattan drug kingpin Frank Lucas. Denzel Washington stars as the slick thug who builds an empire during the '70s while battling a determined police detective (played by Russell Crowe). Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) does camera duty. 157 minutes R.
