The Two Faces of January (movie review)

I watched The Two Faces of January recently; this subtle psychological thriller set in the early 60s and based on the 1964 novel of the same name is in film noir style, very stylish and really enjoyable.

The storyline’s based on 3 main characters – a seemingly wealthy and glamorous couple and a young man, one of whom is a con artist, meet in Athens, Greece and become reluctantly involved after a violent incident.  Starring Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen (always a pleasure to see this talented fellow in movies, he never makes a bad one), you’re never sure who to trust as jealousy, betrayal and paranoia abound (if you’re into Hitchcock, you’ll love this).
