Slow burn, low key noirish drama sees Guy Pearce come to terms with actions in his past after visiting a fortune teller. An interesting premise that falls flat due to never knowing what to do with the central idea. Good hair from Pearce, though. 😐
This film is absolute crap in every possible way – made me want to set myself on fire. Watch it, if only for the novelty value of seeing what happens if a crazy-drunk conversation is taken seriously and made into a film. Sadly, it can not be unseen.
Red-neck heist movie. The plot jumps around a tad wildly but the whole thing holds together pretty well. Has a Coen brothers feel to it yet lacks the fun aspect and the characters you need, but enjoyable none the less.
An FBI agent and a CIA torturer clash over the questioning of a terrorist. Low-budget but decent moral quandary thriller with some effective performances though ultimately no real answers.
Two US soldiers are pinned down by a sniper. Low-key but well-sustained thriller with a straightforward premise, anchored by a couple of good performances and by direction that’s well-conceived enough not to make the piece stagey.
Hard to like mish-mash. Gruesome drippy visuals and gore weaved into a detective story that makes no real sense. Another poor attempt at dragging out a Franchise that was never really very good anyway. Watch if bored only.
An estranged father and son have to work together to survive on a hostile planet. Contrived and awkwardly-structured SF/horror; an obvious Smith family passion project. One great jumpscare aside, though, this is minor work from all.
