Michael Shannon is money.
Few character actors are as strong as the two-time Oscar nominee; the mere appearance of his name in the credits is enough to interest me.
This private eye flick, which offers a nice twist on the genre, is one of his best, however.
Shannon plays a hard-boozing investigator handed a windfall, only to find said case will require him to look deep into his soul.
The man he’s tracking has created a new life after allowing people to think he was a 9/11 victim, setting up an ethical quandary for our dogged detective.
Complex case, stellar Shannon.
