Spenser Confidential (2020, dir. Peter Berg)

A Boston ex-cop, fresh from jail, partners with his new roommate to unravel the conspiracy that led to his imprisonment. A loose adaptation of a post-Robert B Parker Spenser novel, and not a good one. A by-the-numbers comedy thriller that doesn’t do its characters justice, despite a decent cast.

In the Shadow of the Moon (2019, dir. Jim Mickle)

A Philadelphia cop becomes obsessed with a recurring series of crimes, and with the person committing them. Excellent time-travel serial killer cop drama from director Jim Mickle, that touches on all manner of interesting material. Recommended.

Overlord (2018, dir. Julius Avery)

1944 France. A US squad behind German lines encounter a supersoldier programme. Well-mounted horror/military action hybrid that doesn’t quite make the most of its well-worn B-movie premise, but is great to look at and has an appealing young cast.
