Easy Money

4

The simplest kind of change

Getting a belated UK release thanks to the backing of Martin Scorsese, Daniel Espinosa’s Nordic thriller made its mark on Hollywood years ago. Espinosa got Safe House and star Joel Kinnaman became RoboCop and on the strength of it, and it’s easy to see why.

Tapping Scorsese (along with Michael Mann and Alejandro González Iñárritu), Easy Money is a stylish, smart trip through Europe’s underworld that hits hard enough to break knuckles.

The multilayered, multilingual plot ties itself in knots (a driver with ambition, a hitman with a baby, a dealer with a conscience), but it’s unsentimental and gripping enough to be worth unravelling.
