    Clicking and Streaming: Tough guys and puppies in the gruff, sweet, 'The Drop'
    Directed by a Belgian best known for "Bullhead," a bumpy noir about the beef trade, and written by Dennis Lehane (and based on his short story "Animal Rescue"), "The Drop" is a quirky, staid romantic dramedy dressed up to look like a gritty crime flick. Introverted bartender Bob (Tom Hardy) finds a pit bull puppy in a garbage can on his way home and decides he’s going to raise the little guy with the help of Nadia (Noomi Rapace), a diffident young woman with a troubled ex-boyfriend from around the way who stuffed the pup in her trash can. And then there are all the townies and stupid fucking traditions and crooks that any community has, which make it hard for semi-decent people in transition like Bob and Nadia. Think of it as a subtler, sadder, and sweeter variation on "John Wick," 2014’s other movie one might categorize under the quasi-burgeoning "tough guy/cute dog" subgenre.
