It's Crudup who steals every scene, whether he's waxing philosophical about the benefits of iCloud or blackmailing Bud with a charming, unsettling grin.
Story-wise, nothing in Glass Chin will surprise you. But stylistically, the film's got something cool going on.
The true measure of a good tale is in the telling, and writer-director Noah Buschel spins his yarn in an unexpected, ultimately satisfying fashion.
Despite an appealing fondness for New York locations and habits, Mr. Buschel and his cinematographer, Ryan Samul, have embalmed their film in style.
Punchy dialogue, sharply drawn characters and excellent performances fuel "Glass Chin," an intimate drama that's set in the boxing world but is about so much more.
Corey Stoll is the only reason to sit through this muddled Jersey-set drama.
It's a truly nifty little neo-noir gem that deserves to find an audience.
It's compact and stripped down, but it contains multitudes.
[Writer/director Noah] Buschel has written some of the most naturalistic, reasonable-people talk you'll ever hear in a movie.
A familiar story of a struggling ex-boxer who winds up in bed with a mobster, Noah Buschel's Glass Chin tries to spin a 1930s B movie premise into a contemporary art film. And it almost works.
Glass Chin is a sturdy drama delivering some heavy emotional blows, even if it doesn't score a knockout.
Stoll and Ireland are both in top form-Ireland, in particular, brings heartbreaking depth to a part that usually gets short shrift in noirs.
Really great film, like a novel playing out right in front of you. Stoll is one the most underrated actors around and deserves many more roles like this, you only have to watch House of Cards season 1 and homeland season 4 first episode to see the scope of his talent. I can't recommend this highly enough, the story and dialogue take center stage unlike other dramas. The camera work is minimal at best which is a great thing.
