Blu-ray Release: A Most Violent Year

April 7, 2015

By John Corrado

A Most Violent Year Blu-rayElevation Pictures is releasing A Most Violent Year on Blu-ray today.  Named for the high crime rate in New York in 1981, the story centres around Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac), a hardworking immigrant struggling to keep his heating and oil business afloat amidst allegations of fraud and threats of violence, and his wife Anna (Jessica Chastain) who has no qualms with taking things into her own hands.

Although offering more smoke than actual fire, A Most Violent Year is a well made film that deserves some level of admiration.  Oscar Isaac delivers excellent and carefully mannered work, and Jessica Chastain is sizzlingly good in a Golden Globe-nominated role, and their performances are both worth seeing.  My full review is right here.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with writer-director J.C. Chandor and producers Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb, as well as deleted scenes and three featurettes.

A Most Violent Year is 125 minutes and rated 14A.
