    A Most Violent Year

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I’d probably be up for watching this again now that I know almost nothing happens. It’s a slow burn that fizzles out. Nevertheless it’s an interesting character study—a man you expect to be corrupt is just trying to stay straight. I was intrigued by that aspect. 

    This was written and directed by J.C. Chandor, but strangely, it felt like an “adaptation, but the book was better.”

    One of the best things I’ve seen in a very long time. It often reminded me of Beyond the Black RainbowHer; and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but Cory Fukunaga takes his story to an entirely original place. I only wish I had known that the 10 episodes are actually only 6 hours. I’d have started it on a Saturday afternoon instead of a Sunday night. The anticipation of waiting to see how it ended was too much.
