Applies solid moviemaking principles for a satisfying effort.

They say if your recipe only has a few ingredients, you need to make sure each of the components in that recipe are fresh and of good quality. One miss and whole dish falters. This is a story set in one location with a bare handful of actors and a seemingly straightforward premise, but what they do with the limitation is a great lesson in moviemaking. The acting, dialogue and choice from the characters combined for a plot filled with drama, tension and twists from beginning to end. This is a film for the thinking Cinephile. The direction is mindful and no shot is wasted, though I am sure there are details missed on first viewing. A Tailor, his place of business, the young assistant, a few mob associates, an ever changing plot and there you have it--a delicious recipe for a very good film.

Good film noir
Verified purchase
A good mystery and excellent acting. I have seen the actor who played "The Cutter" (Tailor" before in other roles. His facial expressions are subtle, but if you pay attention...... Supporting actors are excellent and one would be hard pressed to see any better performances. This could have easily been over-acted, given the genre. It is as if the actors were keeping a lid on their role and not letting themselves loose to turn in a caricature of the genre.

Crafting With A Plan
Verified purchase
At the beginning of "The Outfit" the story is delivered to us by Leonard Burling(Mark Rylance) who is narrating. From the backrooms of a cloistered tailor shop, the shadows and the brewed soupiness of garment tones let's us know that some entanglement with the mob is imminent. This happens quickly, as Mr. Burling, who is accomodating, gets to socialize with the circumspect friends of his young secretary, Mable Sean(Zoey Deutsch).
The setting is condensed, but it doesn't take away from any excitement-the possibility for adventure. It is in Chicago, in 1956, and the L. Burling Tailor facility is in a neighborhood which is under gang control, and further out, 'The Outfit' of Al Capone. It's the kind of movie where the clothing, the angled hats and the gold and silver wall embellishments represent a land of lore. The character types are from classic books and are models from vintage gangster films. These relics are produced with style so that the actors are as real and natural as any laborer on the block. The confrontation between Francis(Johnny Flinn) and Ritchie(Dylan O'Brien) is a great scene. I'd give this film four and a half stars. There are lies told to save lives, but when this happens things are brought out, and "The Outfit" presents this vision; a house of mystery, the walls are cards, everything is darkish, and one can't wait to see what happens next.
Like an answer to a clue, the movie resolves itself, in responses to questions, and more information is supplied. The ingenious fictions become exposed. The past is leaked out, and towards the conclusion, some of the brazen twists become colorful like visible contrivances, so that the interactions lose their home-scratch sprouted energy, in mild ways. In the end, all the dramas are finished to good satisfaction.

This is an excellent movie!

Well acted. Nice plot. All takes place in a tailor’s store - entire movie. Yet it works. The twists and turns of this adventure makes you sit at the edge of your seat. One of those movies you hated to see end since the characters quickly become likable characters when in fact they are not. Watch it!!

It all takes place in one building
Verified purchase
I was tricked into renting and watching this movie because of at least two other movies in the last ten years that were hot action films that included prominent scenes with a Tailor. This is NOT an action movie, and the whole thing takes place in just inside the Tailor Shop!

There are only about 12 actors in the whole thing, and in order to try and make this film "exciting," there was ridiculous swapping of lines back and forth as to who was the "mole" in the mafia.

Don't be tricked like I was into watching this, unless you want to know all the different parts of what is involved in cutting out fabric and sewing a new suit together.

All the work cut out

The more we watch Mark Rylance, the more we appreciate the training a stage actor receives. This movie could have been enjoyed by the blind. That is how good Rylance's performance is. The entire story takes place in an immaculately, and fashionably (old-fashionably) set up, bespoke tailor shop - but as Leonard Burling (Rylance) points out more than once, he's not a tailor, he's a cutter.

The movie involves Burling, his assistant Mable, played by the lovely Zoey Deutch, two underworld gangs of Chicago, and a brief appearance of an FBI officer. What a treat. You might need some time after the movie has sunk in, to realise why Burling did what he did. Good to pay attention.

Untouchables era
Verified purchase
***SPOILER***The outfit is a really well done film and if you are fans of movies like the untouchables, tombstone, John Dillinger, etc this movie is a perfect fit for you. Mob era, backroom deals and a lot of secrets. Personally I was all in until they killed Dylan O’briens character (Kind of the reason I bought the movie), but continued to watch because I needed to see how the storyline ended. It is typical of these movies to have a slow start while you understand each character, the situation, etc. Movies where you have to pay close attention to detail. My dad absolutely loved it while I on the other hand summed it up as better then average. It’s a movie for those who like era flicks.
