John Ary here with another installment of The Vulcan Vault...

Alec Baldwin in Miami Blues

This week we're off to sunny Florida for one of Alec Baldwin's meatiest roles. When a con man assumes the identity of a washed-up detective (played by a grizzled Fred Ward), the two men square off in a brilliant game of cat and mouse. Miami Blues also features an adorable Jennifer Jason Leigh as a prostitute with a heart of gold. We also get some great supporting performances from SNL's Nora Dunn, 80's hard-ass Charles Napier and Principal Vernon himself Paul Gleason. I would have loved to have seen these characters come back for a series of Hoke Moseley detective films.

Miami Blues is available on DVD. BIG NEWS for folks that enjoy The Vulcan Vault. Starting next week, we're going to do a month of special guest recommendations from some really interesting folks. We'll be kicking off our special month of awesome with a self proclaimed "World Champion" and former NBC sitcom star. He's really into bad movies. Don't worry though about our trusty band of Vulcan film pickers. They will return in June.
