Aro Recommended Most Violent Year, A


USA 2014, 125 minutes
Dir. J.C. Chandor
Rating: [R13] Violence, offensive language, drug use and sexual material
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period 1980s, Business & Economics.


“A bracingly blunt look at the sometimes debilitating cost of doing business that casts an unblinking eye on the physical, emotional and moral bottom line. ”~Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: The dir. of MARGIN CALL returns to the subject of business ethics for this tough-minded, slow-burn drama set in early 80's New York.

Following an ambitious, idealistic immigrant who fights to protect his oil transportation business and family against a backdrop of urban volatility and unrest, Oscar Isaac (almost unrecognizable from his turn in INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) is terrific, while the period setting is immaculately rendered in the drab hues of the era.
