LOS ANGELES: Violence was everywhere for director J.C. Chandor.It might never have happened if Chandor hadn't needed a job.Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut is just two towns from where Chandor lives with his young family.Then, Chandor realized that he too could choose both.In "A Most Violent Year," he synthesizes the structure of the classic gangster film with an idea of a character piece that he'd been toying with for years, set around a small family business.Starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, "A Most Violent Year," centers on a husband and wife and their growing heating oil company in that storied year. To recreate the time, Chandor and cinematographer Bradford Young took inspiration from the photographs of Jamel Shabazz, a New York photographer from the period who focused on African Americans and Latinos living in the city.For Chandor, who grew up in New Jersey and often took trips in to the city to see shows with his mom or visit his dad, who worked in the World Trade Center, it was exciting and terrifying.
