Mad City


A fired museum security guard goes back to the museum - gun in hand - to claim his job back. Things don't work out quite as planned, and he ends up the unwilling baddie in a hostage situation. Enter a sleaze-bag reporter looking to make his name rather than report the news. They cut an 'exclusive' deal, resulting in massive media coverage of the situation.

The film is supposed to examine the role of the media in modern society but critics complain that it does not break any fresh ground.
