‘Mississippi Grind’

mississipigrindposterRaw, gritty indie film, Mississippi Grind has, at its core, a superb central performance by the highly underrated Australian, Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises, Killing Them Softly) – and who is more than ably supported by Ryan Reynolds (The Green Lantern, Buried).

Part road movie, part bromance, a story of obsession and addiction (gambling), it’s honest and slow-paced. Sadly, the ending is a popular cop-out and not the result the film needed, thus undermining everything that came before it.
