There are riots going on in Paris. Check out http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4399510.stm
Resonable action film staring Samuel L Jackson and Kevin Spacey. Nice timepass with good action, reasonable performances and an ok-ish story. Sameul L Jackson is a negotiator who stumbles onto some bad cop stuff and then holds people hostage to try to figure out the truth.
A good film with solid performances by Al Pacino and Johnny Depp. Based on the true story of Pistone (Depp), a FBI agent infiltrating the mafia and how it affects his life. Well worth a watch.
