Michael R. Roskam News

Review: Tom Hardy Makes 'The Drop' a Slow, Dark Ride Worth Taking Tom Hardy tackles yet another awkwardly-spoken eccentric (with something of a dark edge) in The Drop, and, once again he hits the role hard. That is to say, he owns it, and the crime drama elevates to something endlessly watchable with every line he speaks and every twitch his eye gives. With a screenplay from novelist Dennis Lehane and execution in guile from director Michaël R. Roskam, The Drop delivers a powderkeg of subtle intensity, suspenseful in all that it does and doesn't do.

Toronto 2014 Review: Roskam's THE DROP Is A Top Notch Crimer And Fitting Goodbye For Gandolfini Michael Roskam burst onto the scene three years ago with his Belgian bovine crime drama Bullhead.

We've been waiting patiently to see what Roskam would do next, and the film gods have smiled upon us as Roskam's sophomore outing is every bit the apt follow-up that Bullhead deserves. A taut crime drama in Roskam's signature slow burn style, The Drop announces Roskam to English language audiences in a big way.
