From writer/director J.C. Chandor comes "A Most Violent Year", a riveting crime thriller set in New York City during the winter of 1981, the most dangerous year in the city's history. Starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, this gripping story shows one man's determined battle to build his business in the midst of corruption and mob rule whilst protecting his family, without resorting to the violence that surrounds them.
Definately Not "gripping" but classy

I liked this movie and I think if you are a fan of films from a similar genre you will too. It's not all action or particularly violent but it feels 'real' and Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain play their roles to perfection. The end came all too quickly for me and it left me feeling unsatisfied, almost as though I half expected a commentator to add during the credits, "tune in next week for part 2". In fact it did have a HBO TV Series feel to it so who knows...?
