The Guard

"What a beautiful day," sighs Brendan Gleeson's unorthodox Irish cop. The fact that he's saying this while high on acid at the scene of a car accident tells you everything you need to know about this '90s-style crime-comedy. Credit the extraordinary chemistry between Gleeson and costar Don Cheadle for lifting this above the usual Tarantino-esque dross; the way this duo sells the film's Gaelic gallows humor, you wish they'd take the double act on the road.—DF (SVA, Apr 28 at 6:30pm, Apr 29 at 8:30pm; AMC Village VII, Apr 30 at 11:30am)
