Before John Hillcoat's recent, star-studded heist thriller "Triple 9," there were films like John Irvin's 1997 crime story "City of Industry," the latest focus for Scout Tafoya's monthly video series "The Unloved."

The film stars Harvey Keitel as a thief who seeks revenge on the man (Stephen Dorff) who killed his brother after they all participated in a heist. Tafoya's essay on "City of Industry" considers how Irvin's film fits within a 1990s boom of "no-nonsense neo-noir," like John McNaughton's "Mad Dog & Glory" or Michael Mann's "Heat," while arguing this title to be an unjustly under-appreciated entry in the genre movement.
