Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
City of Industry is the name of a Los Angeles enclave, one which couldn't be further from the glamour of Tinseltown. It's the perfect title for this tale of common criminals, average Joes whose warped work ethic includes the occasional prison stretch. City of Industry shows sunny California in a bleak new light. With a multicultural stew of thugs all driving around in vintage Motor City metal, and the emphasis placed on industrial landscapes (including the refinery where James Cagney took his fiery last stand in White Heat), they could be in Detroit. Violence here is always simmering, and when it flares up, it's as brutal, relentless, and remorseless as the central characters. Stephen Dorff practically crackles with anarchic ferocity, and Harvey Keitel again proves he's the onscreen king of inarticulate rage. But at the heart of this taut testosterone fest is Famke Janssen's Rachel, whose tough resilience and wary tenderness show how much it actually costs to pursue a life of crime.
