Plot Summary
An old and young cop work together solve a series of murders
Star #2
Star #3
What do you get when you put three Oscar-winning actors in the same film? A really good movie. Like the title says, it is the little things that make this movie stand out. You can see it in the way Rami Malek twitches his mouth to convey an entire range of emotions. You can hear it in the way Denzel Washington purposefully uses five words when three would make the point. And you can feel it when Jared Leto's physical presence makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

While I can't say that this is a top 10 movie, or a Best Picture nominee, it is a lot better than most movies. It has some pacing issues that slow down the momentum a few times, and there are a couple of plot jumps that don't get resolved, but those problems are fairly minor in the overall makeup of this movie.

It is a very dark and intense dive into the mind of a mad man surrounded by the demons haunting the men trying to bring him to justice. If you only want to see a clean and tidy CSI-style whodunnit, this is not the movie for you. This is dirty, gritty, raw, and disturbing. It is the kind of film that crawls into the depths of your brain and takes root for several days.

Do not go into this one lightly, but if you are in the mood for something dark, this film will give you all that you can handle.
