The Missing Person
Watched this the other day. It's almost exactly what the poster makes it out to be, but you might be surprised to learn that it takes place in the present day. (It sort of has to, because it ties in with certain contemporary events.) It's really good. This actor, Michael Shannon. Wow. I'd never heard of him. He's so cool. I originally wanted to see this because of Amy Ryan, whom I still have a crush on from when she was on The Office. But this Michael Shannon blew me away. The story isn't a mere detective story either. It's a sad and funny movie. Very stylish. Very desaturated, color-wise. Very cool.
