This

One of my favorite modern-day legal thrilers is a little-watched movie called Fracture. Despite having an all-star cast, I find that few folks I know have seen this gem. Mostly I love it for Ryan Gosling’s performance, but I won’t hesitate to admit that I love it because I think that the picture is a bit of an ode to public service. An excerpt:

You know what nobody understands about certain kinds of low paid public service work? Every now and then you get to put a fucking stake in a bad guy’s heart. 

We”re not supposed to talk about that when we visit a third grade classroom for career day and it doesn’t get you very far into a country club locker room, but it’s hard to beat when you actually get to do it.

I mean? Amen.

    Amen. Even if the bad guy is the state.
