I was with it, though, as a damp and depressing city fable about little people who either never made it or made it once, years ago, and then lost it.

But wondering how hes going to handle the mess Marv is creating makes The Drop worthwhile.
This is a film full of character and atmosphere and which pays homage to all of Roskams favourite filmmakers.
Its a modest swan song for Gandolfini, and a hint at what could have been.PLOT Mobsters and psychopaths converge in a humble Brooklyn bar.
But above all the film is another showcase of Hardys versatile talents.
The tone is uneven, and the ending a little queasy, but The Drops unusual chemistry keeps the minimal plot ticking over nicely.
Ultimately, this is Tom Hardys show, and any opportunity to see this actor exercise his skills merits attention.

Robin Clifford Laura Clifford Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) is a Brooklyn bartender.
Adapted by Dennis Lehane from his own story Animal Rescue, The Drop hangs around an old school bar in a Brooklyn untroubled by artisanal cheese shops.

But all tense films need some humor to lighten the load and Lehane wisely inserts a few lines and situations that had my audience laughing out loud.

And this is only a handful of the incredibly unique and well written shows to send viewers through a maze of emotions.
But as a character study and a mood piece, The Drop hits some satisfying notes.
