I watched The Missing Person this afternoon and liked it a lot. Both Michael Shannon and Amy Ryan were terrific in this old fashioned noir story, which was a lot more about the characters than it was the plot. Had I squinted my eyes, I think I would have seen Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett.
More seriously, the movie is such a mannered homage to old style film noir, I am not sure that those who are not already sold on the genre will like it as much as I did. Still, I thought that it was a smart, well made film with an outstanding cast.
