The Yards - Im Hinterhof der Macht Regie James Gray
James Gray, who grew up in Queens, derived the plot both from things he had heard growing up and from real political scandals of the era. But the emotional fury, deriving from conflicting loyalties, a sense of betrayal, and frustrated romance, is entirely Gray’s own. Every character in the film is sustained by family bonds, and every one of those characters is driven by those bonds to self-destruction.

Like many a great film that was not revered upon release, it’s perhaps easier with hindsight to see how The Yards is very much the cornerstone of Gray’s cinema… You could call it the ultimate Queens film. The film’s setting is surely one of the keys to its grandeur: only in a world so close to Manhattan, yet ever so far, could a movie about warring subway contractors take on the scope and intensity of a Viscontian epic.

Where the film does register is as a study of a family torn apart by betrayal and bad faith. With few shoot-outs or kinetic action scenes, The Yards relies on the subtlety and intensity of the performances, most of which are excellent… Ultimately, The Yards is well enough acted and scripted to bear comparison with the character-driven films of the 70s it strives to emulate.
