10 Classic Undercover Movies

Presented by Graceland USA

Over the last few years, USA has become known for producing some of the finest drama on television — cable or otherwise — and summer is the network’s season to shine. Their newest offering is Graceland, a provocative drama about the undercover lives of federal agents. The pilot, which premieres June 6, kicks off with an undercover agent being shot in a drug deal gone wrong, and doesn’t let up from there. It follows a group of DEA, FBI, and Customs (ICE) agents who live together in a Southern California beach house. This may sound more Real World than Miami Vice, but Graceland was inspired by real events, and features enough gritty, drug war action to back up its premise. … Read More

‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ and Other Films About Breaking the Law With Good Intentions

Ryan Gosling’s latest big-screen foray is far from traditional Hollywood fare. The Place Beyond the Pines — also starring Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, and Ray Liotta — re-teams the A-list actor with director Derek Cianfrance, the man behind the brilliantly devastating Blue Valentine. As we’ve hinted at before, revealing exactly what makes this film so different would spoil part of the (bleak) fun, but what has been made clear is the basic setup: Gosling plays Luke Glanton, a tatted-up stunt biker who discovers he has a previously unknown son. To try to support his newly found progeny, he turns to a life of crime, robbing banks to bankroll his child’s care. … Read More
