End of Watch (2012, dir. David Ayer)

Two LA patrol cops cross the paths of a street gang keen to make their mark. Excellent contemporary crime drama focusing on cop camaraderie. A semi-improvised approach and use of found footage give the movie texture, as does the rapport between the lead actors. Recommended.

The Accountant (2016, dir. Gavin O’Connor)

A forensic accountant with social skills issues is also an assassin, specialising in killing international criminals. Oddball action drama with a weird premise and a lead character with the kind of autism found only in movies. Not terrible, but feels like three different spec scripts combined into one.

Mr Right (2015, dir. Pabo Cabezas)

A young woman falls for a hitman trying to redeemĀ himself. Kooky black comedy which hits pretty much all the right notes in delivering on action, jokes, romance, and some surprising moments. Great performances and fineĀ dancing. Recommended.
