The Drop

The Drop


Rated R · 107 minutes · 2014

Crime drama
James Gandolfini, in his last movie role, plays the mobbed-up owner of a Brooklyn workingman's bar, but the more impressive performance here comes from Tom Hardy as his younger cousin, a guileless soul who tends bar and worries that they've gotten themselves in too deep. Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam, making his U.S. debut after the Oscar-nominated Bullhead (2011), reprises the earlier film's seedy look and murky morality, though this time around he's got a much better screenplay, the first ever by much-adapted novelist Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, Shutter Island). Lehane's climactic plot twist is all the more laudable because it springs directly from complexity of character; you realize the truth has been obscured not through a writer's trickery but through your own simple reading of the action. With Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Ann Dowd.
