The Interesting Film-making Technique in Tony Rome

Tony Rome is a Frank Sinatra film-noir that was made in 1967. It's modelled in the Humphrey Bogart mold. Appropriately, Sinatra Bogarts the screen time.

Tony Rome is the focus of every scene in the film. Few films focus so exclusively on one character; by spending so much time with one character, there is a natural rapport in the audience. The problem is that the focus is too narrow. Real life doesn't work this way. No event is solely determined by one person. As such, the film is unrealistic.

It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
