The detective (Al Pacino) in Insomnia (2002). You can literally see Pacino on-screen playing it tough but struggling to hold it together inside as he's in a jeopardizing situation and inadvertently placed himself under the control of the criminal he's supposed to go after.

You can say this about anything.

Detective movies can't possibly capture what a real investigation is like, so they can show you only slices of it. Movies about families can't possibly show you all the dynamics that go on, only slices of it. Movies about wars can't possibly show you what war is like, only slices of it. Etc.
