The Guilty

A troubled police detective demoted to 911-operator duty scrambles to save a distressed caller during a harrowing day of revelations -- and reckonings.

"Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t need a performance vehicle to prove he’s one of the best actors of his generation, but that’s exactly what he gets in The Guilty. He delivers a turn that is compellingly complex, taking the audience on an emotional roller-coaster that results in one of his best performances yet.

"The Guilty is a remake of the 2018 Danish film of the same name, and it features the same basic premise. Gyllenhaal plays Sergeant Bill Miller, a Los Angeles police officer who has been assigned desk duty as a 911 operator for reasons that later become clear. The story takes place over the course of his final evening on duty, when he receives a call from a distressed woman who has been abducted and he works the phones to track her down before it’s too late.

"Screenwriter Nic Pizzloatto, who is most known for creating and running the HBO series True Detective, crafts a delicate and propulsive screenplay that doesn’t rely on cheap thrills but instead keeps the story grounded in theme, making it all the more impactful once you reach the end.

"For Gyllenhaal’s performance alone, The Guilty is worth your while, but that Fuqua and Pizzolatto are also able to craft a compelling, taut, emotional thriller that touches on everything from policing to mental illness make it a must-see." - Collider

"Gyllenhaal [gives] it his volcanic all in a film which keeps him at the center of nearly every frame." - The AV Club 

"Fuqua is reliable in his continued ability to craft tense and measured films for broad audiences looking for complicated tales of morality." - Globe & Mail

"It's so easy to bristle against The Guilty's existence as an American remake, but if you're going to remake something, then Antoine Fuqua's effort here is the way to do it." - EW
