THE DROP

THE DROP (2014), starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Naomi Rapace. Director: Michael R Roskam. Here’s my review:

***½ out of 4

Atmospheric neo-noir centers around Gandolfini’s Brooklyn bar which has been taken over by local gangsters. They use it as a temporary depository for their rackets money, and when the bar is robbed, big trouble follows. Outstanding performances, script, direction, and especially cinematography by Nicolas Karakatsanis, whose bleak rendering of Brooklyn has never been matched. From a short story by Dennis Lehane. Gandolfini’s final film.
