Posthumous Films

Most blockbuster movies come to the big screen with a bit of fuss – a bit of glitz and glamour and red carpet hype.

I have to admit The Drop caught me by surprise. In retrospect I should probably have expected more from such a strong cast operating in a typically understated Dennis Lehane script. 126 more words

The Drop (2014)

I really enjoyed this. Its not self-important, it isn’t trying to be artistic or change the game necessarily, it’s just a simple crime tale told from gutter-level. 304 more words

The Drop

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with The Drop, either aesthetically or narratively. It is hard to fault this effort from Belgian director Michael Roskam as an example of genre filmmaking that is executed very well by all involved. 677 more words

FILM REVIEW: The Drop (2014)

Based upon Dennis Lehane’s 2009 short story Animal Rescue, The Drop is a familiar, if none-the-less entertaining and tense crime drama featuring the final performance from the late, great James Gandolfini. 592 more words
