Published: 2014

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Directed by Michael Roskam and filled with stunning shots and scenes, The Drop is one of the best films of the season.  The story follows the heart-breaking life of Bob the bartender, played by Tom Hardy, and depicts his gentle spirit in the face of a multitude of crimes, which act as a back-drop for the intense inter-character relations and individual monologues that occur throughout the film. 443 more words
