Description
Commanding work on debut from writer director Graham Moore and writer John McClain (seriously John McClain) and an expectedly brilliant lead from Mark Rylance (where was that Oscar nom for Don't Look Up?) playing a tailor tangled up with the Chicago mob post WW2. A one room film (doesn't feel it) shot on a low budget (doesn't look it) and apart from its sumptuously visual and sound presentation, reliant solely on a cracking scrip and set of performances. The low key gem of the year so far for me. One for fans of Millers Crossing, The Usual Suspects and the work of David Mamet. Sequel is required please guys - The Outfit London.
