Denzel Washington plays heroin kingpin Frank Lucas in this grimy, down-and-dirty crime saga from... Ridley Scott? Yes, the director of Blade Runner and Alien tackles '70s crime thrillers in a way that only he can. Russell Crowe plays the hard-as-nail New Yoiker cop who's out to nail Lucas, and there's also fantastic supporting turns from Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Hawkes and Josh Brolin.
