There were murmurings of surprise when JC Chandor's drama A Most Violent Year was named film of the year by the National Board of Review in December. However, after a great swathe of positive reviews ahead of its release on New Year's Eve, the movie is considered to have a real chance of at least scoring a nomination for the biggest night on the movie's calendar.
