Three sentence movie reviews: The Two Faces of January
So my mild infatuation with Oscar Issac continues.* I was surprised that I hadn’t heard of this movie, as it was quite good–tense in all the right places. It’s based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, and follows the usual pattern.
Cost: Free from library.
Where watched: at home. Film 1 of 3 of today’s scheduled Movie Palooza.**
*And who doesn’t like a side of Viggo Mortensen?
**Side note. When I watched the movie Frank, I was intrigued by the preview for this movie and White Bird in a Blizzard, the next film in today’s Movie Palooza. I was amused to notice the previews for this movie and the next all played a small game of rotating through each other. This had Frank and White Bird. While White Bird had this and Frank. Magnolia Pictures was pushing all the same movies at the same time.
