Toronto 2014: '99 Homes' Review

Ramin Bahrani was once a much-touted indie filmmaker (Chop Shop), but his recent movies have been mild disappointments. First was At Any Price, and now comes 99 Homes, an intriguing look at the collapsing U.S. housing market. It stars Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, who are both quite fine. Sadly, though, the film is only good-enough. I reviewed 99 Homes for Paste.
