THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY - COMPELLING MOVIE
stats: are beyond belief
THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY
This film is similar to many Hitchcock movies. The story is about a mature man who has a younger wife (Kirsten Durst). Her husband is up to some kind of scam - (Viggo Mortensen). Both are sexy looking. I do know this -- it's set in beautiful surroundings.
The individuals are great looking with heavy motives - especially the clever men that tries to kept secrets. However - the plot twists keep you on the edge of your seat.
Their entire film is seamlessly put together - and the scenery is gorgeous - and Hypnotic. It will certainly keep you in your seat.
"The Two Faces of January" takes place in 1961 Athens. Rydal (Oscar Issac) in fluent American, knows every Greek word. He Guides thru mediterranean locations - Athens, Crete and Istanbul. How can we not enjoy The finest cast of this year - Terrific!
The film was based on the Patrica Highsmith novel. To me - this fantastic movie will certainly appeal to all. And why not? It's wonderful to look at. The film was directed by Hossein Amini (he also wrote the screenplay.)
THE BEAUTY AND THE ACTING IS ON THE SCREEN -- YOU'LL LOVE IT!
