The Drop


The Drop
In the underworld of Brooklyn, New York bars, so-called ''money drops'' are used to funnel cash to local gangsters. When a robbery at the bar of his employer and cousin goes awry, a bartender finds himself entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living ... no matter what the cost.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconTaut, intriguing, and capable of drawing the attentive viewer in, The Drop is a good way to bridge the gap between the disappointment of 2014's summer season and the hope of better things to come in the autumn.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile it might be fairly predictable and isn't the speediest of films, it's not bad watching this pot -- and plot -- start to boil.
