A Week In Film #343: Newness

Blood Ties title screen
Blood Ties
Strong seventies-set crime drama, compellingly put together by director Guillaume Canet, focusing on the relationship between two brothers – emotionally drained cop Billy Crudup, and recently released from prison criminal Clive Owen, as well as the collateral damage they have on third parties, like Marion Cotillard. Beautifully assembled, and avoids most of the most overused tropes.
