FEATURE | Family Ties: A Most Violent Year and The Godfather


‘A Most Violent Year is that most rare of things; a gangster flick that rejects crime, and flinches at the sight of blood. But just like Al Pacino’s Michael Coreleone in The Godfather, Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac) is a man who seems to embrace family above all else. What is it about family ties that sets these men on such self-reflexive, and ultimately destructive, personal journeys?’
