Review: The Drop, 2014, dir. Michaël R. Roskam

“Hardy is the film’s defining element, but he isn’t the only one worth seeing the film for. Roskam directs The Drop to handsome effect, throwing a handful of dazzling compositions in among shots that get the job done; meanwhile, Gandolfini does what Gandolfini does, though this isn’t quite the same farewell as last year’s Enough Said. Taken together, they’re enough to get there, pushing the film well past the originality hump and making it well worth the price of admission. Sometimes a movie doesn’t need to be “fresh” to justify watching. Sometimes it just needs to be good.” – via Paste Magazine
