Bad City ★★ Dirty Work 2006 (R)
Yes, gnomish Pendleton is playing a depraved Chicago crime lord named Julian Healy and he's scarily effective. Derek Manning (Reddick) is a tough detective with a gambling problem who is in debt to Healy, which makes investigating the murder of hooker Bridgette (McDonough) difficult. Then there's too-slick politico Frank Sullivan (McGlone) whose troublesome wife (Anglin) is also killed. 97m/C DVD .
