Directed By Hossein Amini, Written by Hossein Amini (screenplay), Patricia Highsmith (novel) Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac The plot and the acting/characters save this movie, as it could have been incredibly bland. To be fair though, it is very much a throwback… Continue Reading “THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY ”
