Keep Dallas Observer Free

Free Screening of Rampart, Tomorrow


isn't a "date" film. Don't be so blinded by the word "free" that you go home and tell the misses that the two of you should reconnect with a nice night out at the movies -- unless you like the couch and she enjoys night terrors.

Here's the film's synopsis according to press materials:

Rampart is a brutally honest portrait of a corrupt Los Angeles police officer. Dave Brown (Harrelson) is already the focus of much internal investigation when he's caught on tape beating a black man, sending his already unstable career into a further tailspin. Dave lives with his wife and his ex-wife, who happen to be sisters, but that doesn't stop him from picking up women in bars and going to bed with a lawyer who may or may not be investigating him. As his life spirals out of control, Dave makes one last desperate grab for cash.

1.) So it's a feel-good movie?

2.) Just for clarification: He beats a black man, cohabitates with sister wives, cheats on everyone, is under investigation, and then his life spirals out of control?
