    A Most Violent Year

    ★★★★★

    When I heard that A Most Violent Year was so incredible that it earned comparisons to The Godfather, I truly thought that sentiment had to be overblown. I mean, it's the fucking GODFATHER. But about a third of the way through, the comparison already felt justified on an intellectual level.

    I tried, but I can't write a real review of this movie because it's too fucking awesome. If you haven't seen it, you need to step your game up.

    This Snatch drinking game will get you fucked up (I do this all the time, it's amazing)
