A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city's history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) and Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. J.C. Chandor's third feature examines one immigrant's determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and - above all - his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A MOST VIOLENT YEAR, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right.

It was entertaining but not suspenseful in the slightest. Acting was okay. A little of the Godfather's vibes but not enough.
A Most Violent Year is well written, acted, directed, etc. Music, cinematography, and pacing are all spot on. This movie tells a story and studies characters, so it's not a "popcorn flick." If that's what you're interested in, you'll probably really like this movie. If you expect it to be something it's not, you'll be that guy giving a 1-star review and complaining about it being boring.
This movie is very suspenseful and there are many connected subplots,you need to pay attention. You will be on the edge of your seat.
My favorite line is when Jessica tells Oscar that he needs to take care of the problem or she will get involved in it and He will not like that. He agrees.
Oscar Isaac: He is going to be a big star for sure. He will keep your attention.
Worth every penny and your time,you will love it,It ain't no Mary Poppins though.
