Preview, “The Informer”

Not to be confused with the John Ford Irish “troubles” classic of the 1930s, which is about an Irishman torn by guilt, haunted and then hunted for ratting out the IRA for “Trip to America” cash.

In this “Informer,” Joel Kinnaman is an ex-con who goes “back inside” to infiltrate the mob.

Rosamund Pike, Clive Owen and Ana de Armas also star in this Andrea di Stefano (he scripted “Life of Pi”) film. “The Informer” opens March 22.

And yes, remaking the John Ford “Informer” with modern sensibilities remains a good idea, just sitting out there in the “black and white classics” of your Netflix queue.
