Clip from Woody Harrelson's 'Rampart'

There's a jink here and there that wouldn't make it into most big-budget movies, but that's part of the charm, part of what makes this play real. Really, the fly that buzzes around in the middle of this clip would ruin the take in a movie with a more conventional feel. Here, that fly enhances the 'you-are-there' feel. Considering the whole LA Rampart thing, it's appropriate.

Ice Cube's vérité acting technique helps. I love that Harrelson struggles to keep a straight face after shooing the fly away. Clip clicks, vibrates with life. Looking forward. Must see.
