‘Clean’ Trailer: Adrien Brody Writes, Produces, Composes, And Stars In A Dark Vigilante Thriller

I love a good vigilante movie, especially when the vigilante is trying to make up for a tragic, violent past. You know who else likes them? Adrien Brody, and his new movie Clean, which he stars in, produced, composed, and co-wrote, is a passion project that is on the way next month.

Brody, with his fresh beard, dark eyes, and, moody disposition, plays a simple garbage man trying to live a clean life. But all of his attempts to do good are met, the way they always are in movies, with bad intentions.

The script, which Brody co-wrote with his Bullet Head director Paul Solet, is full of classic/cliche “mysterious past” dialogue like this, and I absolutely love it…

“I’ve got blood on my hands, no matter how hard I try. I can’t wash away the past.”

Also in the cast are RZA, Glenn Fleshler, Richie Merritt, Chandler Air-DuPont, Mykelti Williamson, Michelle Wilson, and John Bianco.

Clean opens in theaters and VOD on January 28th 2022.

Tormented by a past life, garbage man Clean (Adrien Brody) attempts a life of quiet redemption. But when his good intentions mark him a target of local crime boss (Glenn Fleshler),

Clean is forced to reconcile with the violence of his past.
