The Two Faces of January (2014)
Stylish-looking and fairly clever thriller from Patricia Highsmith's novel, starring a handful of acting-powerhouses in the leads. The inevitable love triangle turns the at first amicable Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac to adversaries as their dishonest ways unravel around them. The prize in the middle is Kirsten Dunst. Director Hossein Amini (the penner of Drive) creates an at times steaming, vibrant atmosphere where you don't know quite what to expect, even if the film arguably purports to hold more mysteries than it actually does. This isn't quite The Talented Mr. Ripley or Strangers On a Train, but it's still a production with a distinctive Highsmith quality to it.
