A MOST VIOLENT YEAR: Watch Oscar Isaac And Jessica Chastain In First, Searing Clip
Chandor previously helmed Margin Call and All Is Lost, and his latest has already received positive critical notices. A Most Violent Year was recently named best film of the year by the National Board of Review. It opens in New York and L.A. on December 31st and will roll out in January 2015.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.
In the meantime, the film's cinematographer, Bradford Young, has put together a playlist of songs from the era. Be sure to give that a listen.
