    I am probably stating the obvious, but Tom Hardy is the best actor working today. The Drop just reinforces my opinion. I don't know how he gets into these characters and makes them seem so authentic and original. I felt like I was watching his character live his life..not an actor reading from a script. 9 years 8 months ago

    There are so many reasons why a movie buff needs to see The Drop. It's James Gandolfini's last picture after his unfortunate death. It's Michaƫl R. Roskam's (Rundskop) second feature. It also has Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts in it. The story is written by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island). The cinematography is managed by one of Belgium's finest: Nicolas Karakatsanis (Linkeroever, Lost Persons Area, Rundskop, Violet and Welp). And, above all, when it comes to Belgian presence in Hollywood, The Drop transcends The Loft on every level. Especially the atmosphere (Roskam and Karakatsanis = win!) combined with Hardy's brilliant acting (together with Locke one of his best!) make an exceptional movie experience. Storywise it could've been a bit more interesting though. Just like Mystic River it's all too conventional for my taste. The moral ambiguity of Gone Baby Gone or the psychological twist of Shutter Island had a more enduring effect. While I love The Drop for its dreary mood, the narrative had more potential. Nonetheless a movie that I can highly recommend! 9 years 4 months ago

    You gotta watch "Locke" as well. Its fascinating watching him work. He makes it seem effortless. 9 years 8 months ago
