Crime drama
Multi-layered performances by actors Tom Hardy (Locke) and James Gandolfini, in his final role, highlight this first-class crime story, turning on a working-class Brooklyn bar and its shady habitués, including a needy woman (Noomi Rapace) and her needy dog. The screenplay by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) gets maximum mileage from Hardy (as the deceptively slow-witted bartender), Gandolfini (the bar’s slippery former owner), Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts (a sadistic thug), and Michael Aronov (a Chechen gangster), while director Michaël R. Roskam throws in as much New York outer boroughs skullduggery as the screen can hold. Sadly, this is the farewell appearance of Gandolfini, who died in 2013. Top-quality genre filmmaking (105 min.).
