The Outfit

The Outfit ★★½

Fun to watch but showier than it is convincing. Aside from Rylance, the performers here are all a little off kilter, as if they were brought in from another production and handed this little mobster script. Even Rylance wobbles a bit with the exceedingly lengthy monologues that he’s given. I’m also a little tired of certain character types being coded as inherently good; when, late in the movie, a new group shows up, they are so clearly meant to be “better” than the rest that it feels actually a bit insulting. Anyway, it’s all done with good taste and careful control but not enough abandon.
