I'm really looking forward to this. Tom Hardy has a lot to offer and I'm pretty excited to see how he approaches this.

Maybe I haven't been paying attention, but why haven't I heard of this? Sounds intriguing.

Its really quite amazing how great an actor Hardy is. So unsuspectingly good. He takes roles you would never really equate as high art and turns them into something amazing. A unique and fantastic talent.

I cannot wait to see this. Sounds like PPV though, not looking like it will make it to any cinemas outside NYC.

Opens wider on May 9. "Wider", however, probably doesn't mean the 24-plex around the block.

Saw this yesterday and I'll definitely be lobbying for Tom Hardy when it's time for the Pedros again. It really is the ultimate test of acting; can you hold an audience's attention for nearly 1.5 hours without any other physical presence or setting to play off of? He nails it and then some. On paper, a description of this movie sounds boring and/or gimmicky, but on screen it's so easily relatable.

This and UNDER THE SKIN are my two favorites of the year so far.

This is absolutely a Pedroworthy performance, and an Oscarworthy one as well. The Best Actor category is always crowded, but of the indie releases thus far, Tom Hardy represents the best chance to break through. I have no significant data to back this up. Just a feeling I have.
