5- #DLMChallenge “The Drop”

On January 25th, I watched one of James Gandolfini’s last films: The Drop. This low-key mob flick really challenges Tom Hardy’s likability. At first it’s hard to understand his motivations, but you can’t help but feel for him and his dog. Then as the film comes to a conclusion it really falls into place.

A great slow burn for a final film performance.

Cinematographer: Nicolas Karakatsanis (The Loft, Bullhead)

Written by: Dennis Lehane (Shutter Island, (novel)  Mystic River, (novel))
