At the Movies: ‘Two Faces' builds tension, has nice cast

By DEBORAH YOUNG
The Hollywood Reporter

LOS ANGELES — Who can say no to a good Patricia Highsmith adaptation? Though her 1964 suspense thriller “The Two Faces of January” is not the easiest story to bring to the screen. Still, the production, shot in Greece and Turkey, is truly lush and the actors — Viggo Mortensen, Oscar Isaac and Kirsten Dunst — almost too subtle and nuanced for the roles they play. The result is easy viewing.
