Fifth about The Seventh

Brute Force

MV5BMTcyMjcxODc2Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzMxMTI0MQ@@._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_Brute Force: strong drama, earnest and convincing that the characters belong in the setting. The good writing, with a story that sounds possible and has something to say, however, doesn’t extend to allow the central characters to have an arch. The acting is solid: both Burt Lancaster (not using his usual charming presence) and Hume Cronyn are standouts. Visually, the film certainly has many interesting moments in well-composed shots. This film is a grim experience, but a good one.
