The nice guys
The nice guys is set in the 1970s Los Angeles where the failed private detective Holland March and the roughneck Jackson Healy are forced to collaborate to resolve a case with a missing young woman. The disappearance seems to be related to murders in the porn industry. During the investigation they reveal a conspiracy that extends all the way up to the corridors of power. According to Fredrik Sahlin at Kulturnyheterna, the movie is “a well-oiled comedy-machine, with dialogue so much cleverer than any of this pastiche’s previous efforts could even dream about. Crowe, Gosling and the others is equipped with an entire arsenal of unexpected whims, irrefutable reflections, meta-references and quick comments”. SvD’s Anna Hellsten calles The nice guys “a ridiculously entertaining movie”.
