Homicide
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - David Mamet


Joe Mantegna plays Baltimore homicide detective Bobby Gold in what appears, at first blush, to be a gritty, straightforward cop opera. Soon, however, Gold is assigned to a murder case that he doesn't want, a case involving a Jewish woman's murder. As he gets deeper into the case, Gold finds himself pushed by circumstance into a profound identity crisis--and winds up torn between his honor as a policeman and his heritage as a Jew.
