Big Easy, The (1986)

In New Orleans, the steamy city of hot music and spicy food, the odd bribe is all in a day’s work for unconventional cop Remy McSwain (Dennis Quaid).

But his job becomes complicated when a gang war threatens to blow the city apart and his methods are questioned by Anne Osborne (Ellen Barkin) from the DA’s office.

Ned Beatty and John Goodman provide gritty support while director Jim McBride brings the unique quality of the city to throbbing life.
