The Guilty


L.A. cop Joe Baylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) is working a night shift at the 911 call center when heā€™s drawn into a kidnapping situation. A remake of the excellent 2018 Danish thriller that offers more or less the same story, with a few tweaks near the end, including a police officer who accepts responsibility for crimes he commits, undoubtedly an idea influenced by current events. Well-crafted, even if the filmmakers fail to recreate the same kind of claustrophobic atmosphere as the original. Benefits from Gyllenhaalā€™s performance as the asthmatic cop whoā€™s pretty much a human pressure cooker.

2021-U.S. 90 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Antoine Fuqua. Screenplay: Nic Pizzolatto. Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal (Joe Baylor). Voices of Riley Keough (Emily Lighton), Peter Sarsgaard (Henry Fisher), Eli Goree, Ethan Hawke, Paul Dano.

Trivia: Co-produced by Fuqua and Gyllenhaal.Ā
