A Most Violent Year

A Most Violent Year ★★★★★

yep, watched it again today. i really do feel this one will be overlooked. most will probably find it too slow, but the simmering tension and Isaac's performance are something to truly behold. i found it very similar to The Drop, which also maintained a relatively slow pace before exploding in the final act. this one pulls off the same feat, albeit in an unconventional manner. it's less obvious, more subtle i guess. i have no qualms stating chandor has crafted an American classic. i can't stop thinking about this gem.

i reckon it'll be pretty high on my top 25, whenever i decide to spit that motherfucker out. (probably sometime this week, if anyone actually gives a fuck)

magnifique.
