| Why take the risk?
"Zipper" made me think a little about "House of Cards", despite having seen just a few episodes from the first season. Its political theme, unmeasurable ambition and unscrupulous individuals. On those parameters, "Zipper" succeeds on presenting complex and divided characters, whose ultimate goal is a seat in power.

Patrick Wilson and Lena Headey both stood out. I'd never seen one of his films fully and I was kind of surprised with his acting and commitment to the role. After seeing Headey on "GoT" I wasn't surprised with her acting, because, at some extent, in this one she plays a modern version of Cersei Lannister - the cheating husband, the obsessive care and protection for her children (its all there). They both are great on their respective roles, portraying a troubled couple, which has been married for a long time and in which routine is deeply established. They have the chemistry and the acting chops.

Aside from the main actors, we have Ray Winstone and Richard Dreyfuss with particular small roles but roles which give the movie more credibility. The feminine cast is a committed one, not afraid of touching the level of soft-core porn on some scenes.

In what concerns directing, I must say I liked the overall look of the movie, very sober and clean, but above all, real. The script is well- written, with well-developed characters. The ending,in general, is somewhat predictable but the last scene, well, the last scene, simply wasn't and reveals the intelligence of the filmmaker.

Why take the risk?

"Zipper" is a good movie to watch, pretty good performances and well- directed.
