Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in a film together is a recurring wet dream of mine, and in The Drop it finally came true. This is an actor’s film: the beauty of it lies in the physicality of the actors and how they could be thinking and acting contradictorily at almost every turn. The film doesn’t have quite the climax one would hope for, but watching these actors work is worth price of admission alone.
The material is relatively conventional, but the cast is so good, that they make it worth watching and sitting by. Good review.
