Oscar Isaac’s deep brown orbs reveal everything and nothing about his character Abel Morales, an ambitious heating-oil entrepreneur in the crime-ridden New York of 1981. He’s working a waterfront land deal that will give his firm, Standard Heating Oil, the edge in a cutthroat industry. But thugs connected to rival concerns are attacking his drivers and salesmen and stealing his oil. This threatens his livelihood — and maybe also his life.
He seems like a decent man, the son of hardworking immigrants.
The daughter of a local mob boss, there’s no doubt she’s familiar with Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the ruthlessness of it if not the tragedy. If Abel doesn’t fight back, hard, she’ll see that action is taken.
Extras include deleted scenes, director/producer commentary and making-of featurettes.
So does a slow-dawning realization that Aydin’s chest-thumping view of himself as an alpha male, and his hypocritical attitudes towards the poor, have deprived him of much love and affection.
