A Most Violent Year

Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) plays a businessman determined to rise to the top of New York City's home heating oil delivery industry, circa 1981. Writer-director J.C. Chandor (All Is Lost) wants very badly to direct a '70s-style, Sidney Lumet-esque crime thriller. A Most Violent Year has got a lot of grit and plenty of atmosphere, but the milieu seems petty, and the overall film is just too chilly to really hit home. 125 minutes R.
