Critics reviews

If anyone can spit out Ellroy’s increasingly lurid and labyrinthine verbiage, it’s Woods, who always appears to be moving several beats faster than any given costar. It doesn’t take long for Cop, a trim, sleazy, uncomfortably exciting adaptation of Ellroy’s Blood on the Moon, to revel in the full potential of Woods performing the author’s material.

[Cop involves] a bravura 90-second take in which each of Woods’s gestures—fingers tapping on the couch, split-second glimpses at his watch, more eye-rolls—conveys the character’s studied frustration with amazing accuracy. The direct, full-access insight the viewer has into Hopkins’s thought process here signals it as an acting moment of a rare, exceptional caliber.
